BOS 4, BAL 0: Reverse, reverse

One day after being dominated by Tommy Hanson, Jon Lester and the Boston Red Sox turned the table on the Baltimore Orioles.
Lester threw seven shutout innings allowing just five hits, no walks and eight strikeouts.
Dustin Pedroia and Jason Varitek both had RBI singles and J.D. Drew hit a two-run homer, his 10th of the season.
Jonathan Papelbon made on out in the ninth to earn his 19th save of the season and tie a club record with 132 saves in his career as a Red Sox.
Star of the Game – Lester
Lester now improves to 8-0 in 10 career starts against the Orioles.
Next Game – 6/30 vs. Baltimore Orioles – John Smoltz/Rich Hill
Let’s hope Smoltz is better this time around.
