Evan BrunellFeatured ColumnistSeptember 15, 2008

Jon Lester and the rest of the Red Sox held off Roy Halladay and the Toronto Blue Jays for a 4-3 win.

Kevin Youkilis tallied the all important sacrifice fly insurance run in the eighth inning as the Jays scored two in the ninth off of Jonathan Papelbon to make it a one run game.  It was Papelbon’s 38th save of the season.

Star of the Game: Lester

Eight innings pitched, four hits, only one run, two walks, and six strikeouts for his 15th win of the season.

Next Game: Now or never

Boston is one game back in the division to the Tampa Bay Rays with a three game set coming up.  The Red Sox goal for this series at the Trop should be to sweep.
