BOS 6, BAL 3: Bay delivers, Lester stays hot

Evan Brunell@evanbrunellFeatured ColumnistAugust 19, 2008

It might be safe to say that Jon Lester is the new ace of the staff.

Earning his 12th victory of the season over seven innings of work, he allowed just four hits and one run while striking out five in the win over Baltimore.

Jason Bay homered twice in the victory, belting a solo-shot in the second and a two-run homer in the eighth inning.

Star of the Game: Lester

Again, Lester dominated opposing hitters.  I feel he is the ace of the staff this year.  Debate all you want.

Next Game: Team we should beat

This Orioles team is a team we should beat.  If they do not sweep I would be surprised here.
