Lester Proves He Is An Ace
The Red Sox got back on track with a 9-2 win over Tampa Bay. A Stephen Drew grand slam and seven strong innings from Jon Lester was more than enough to take down the Rays.
Lester is now 4-0 with a 1.94 ERA in six starts after a Sox loss this season. That’s the sign of an ace.
Drew not only at the grand slam but he added an RBI double. Will Middlebrooks also hit a home run.
The series finale tonight features Felix Doubront vs Alex Cobb in a battle of young arms.
At 23-17 the Sox are tied with Baltimore for 2nd place in the AL East, two games back of the Yankees.
