Red Sox P Jon Lester Tweets His Temple Run Score During a Game

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffAugust 3, 2013

Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester allowed a season-high 11 hits in just 4.1 innings Friday, his worst outing of the season. Apparently, to take his mind off his awful start, he played a little Temple Run and was pretty proud of his score. The only problem with this was that it was still the ninth inning when he shared his achievement.

The tweet has since been deleted, but Lester had the autotweet function enabled on his phone so it automatically shared his score of 1,209 (which isn't anything to brag about, coming from someone who plays often). Lester later blamed his three-year-old son for sharing the score.

In the end, Lester avoided the loss because the Red Sox rallied in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the score before ultimately losing 7-6.

Hat tip to Larry Brown Sports for the find.
