Sox Trump O’s; Keep Pace In Races

Boston Red SoxJon Lester took his dominance of the Baltimore Orioles to a new level last night on a beautiful evening at Fenway Park when the Boston Red Sox defeated the Orioles 9-3. Over seven innings, Lester spread five hits and only one run in a performance that allowed him to run his record against the Orioles to 12-0 lifetime against the Orioles. But, more importantly, the win let the Sox keep pace with the New York Yankees who beat the Toronto Blue Jays 11-3 early in the day. They were also able to keep their lead in the AL Wild Card as the Tampa Bay Rays also won yesterday with an 8-6 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Kevin Youkilis helped out with a 3-run 5th inning homerun that pretty much sealed the deal for the Orioles. JD Drew (2), Daniel Nava (1), Mike Cameron (1), and David Ortiz (1) also got in the RBI game for the Sox.

The Sox go for the sweep today as John Lackey (9-3, 4.46 ERA) takes the mound against Brian Matusz (2-9, 4.90 ERA) at 1:35pm.
