Hey Nineteen! Lester In The Cy Young Hunt

Jon Lester was brilliant again and was the winning pitcher yesterday at Yankee Stadium. The final score was 7-3 Boston and he notched his 19th victory. Hey nineteen! He's still in the thick of Cy Young Award talk even though voters may have already made up their mind. Here's Jon on exactly that...

“It would be nice, but it’s not going to hurt my feelings if I’m not. I’m going to show up in spring training next year and be ready to go.’’

Lester has been a strikeout machine and yesterday was no exception. He gave up only two hits in that span and whiffed eight (!). He was immense. For the Boston Red Sox to significantly benefit from this three game set, THEY HAVE TO WIN TONIGHT.

The two teams go at it shortly after 8pm EDT on ESPN and ESPN HD for all of Red Sox Nation to see. It'll be Matsuzaka (9-6) versus Hughes (17-8) in what has become a "big" game. Enjoy it if you can and enjoy your Sunday, too. You can click on this post's title to watch the highlights from yesterday's game including every one of Jon's strikeouts. As always, BE WELL.
