Five Straight For Lester The Great
Yes, Jon Lester is back on track, cementing his left handed dominance in the American League. In ALL of major league baseball, to be more precise. Sunday at Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox blanked the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 6-0. Totonto was officially eliminated from post-season play. Lester went seven strong innings and his future appears white hot bright. Jon picked up his 18th win of the season, tying Bruce Hurst in 1988 for the most wins by a Sox lefthander since 1954. Two more, Jon. Dos mas. That's about all he's going to get but don't be surprised if Mr. Lester finishes with twenty victories. That's SO great. He'll do it, too.
A three game Fenway Park set will start tonight. Here is all the info...
Mon. 20** Bal 7:10 PM ET MASN/NESN** Matsuzaka (9-5) Matusz (8-12)
Tue. 21 **Bal 7:10 PM ET MASN/NESN **Buchholz (16-7) Bergesen (7-10)
Wed. 22 **Bal 7:10 PM ET MASN/NESN **Lackey (12-11) Millwood (3-15)
The Sox will need their bats Wednesday night. Why? My faith in John Lackey is gone, gonzo, zero, nada. I'm sure it will return...next year. Have a great Monday and click on this post's title for all the highlights from Lester's beauty. As always, BE WELL.
