Last night Jon Lester continued his success against the Baltimore Orioles. Going into the game with a career 7-0 records in 9 starts against the team, Lester didn’t seem to look any different from his previous outings. Allowing only five hits and no walks in 7 innings, Lester continued to dominate the Orioles. He threw 8 strikeouts and allowed only one man to advance past first base. With a 4-0 lead after the fourth inning (due to a J.D. Drew two-run home run and rbi single from Jason Varitek), Lester needed no more support in order to win. Closer Jonathan Papelbon shut the door in the 9th to tie Bob Stenley’s Red Sox save record at 132. The Sox have two more games at Camden Yards before an off-day and a 10-game homestand leading into the All-Star Break.
