Lester’s First Win, 4-2 Vs NYY [VIDEO]
Call it a good news-bad news Friday night for the Red Sox. They beat the Yankees 4-2 but word came down that closer Koji Uehara has shoulder tightness and has been shut down. Edward Mujica pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning to get the save and preserve Jon Lester’s first win of the year.
All the runs needed came in the sixth inning. A Jonny Gomes solo home run and then a 3-run blast by Grady Sizemore.
