BOS 4, SEA 0: Sox blank M’s

Evan BrunellFeatured ColumnistJuly 22, 2008

Jason Varitek hit a two-run home run and Jon Lester pitched 7 1/3’s innings striking out six and walking none on eight hits to improve to 8-3 on the season.

Jonathan Papelbon earned his 29th save of the season.

Star of the Game: Lester

Boston needed a start like the one Lester gave last night.  Hopefully they take this momentum and run with it and get out of the funk they were in to start the second half.  They certainly are a step closer to beginning a big second half that I think will happen.

Next Game: Good chance

We grab this game tonight with Dice-K on the mound.  He just has to throw strikes early on in the game and watch his high walk total and we should be all set.
