Bad year, good pitcher

Red Sox’ Jon Lester improves to 10-7 in 4-hitter vs. Royals; 2.50 ERA best on a last-place team; Boston leads MLB in LOB, 1-run losses; going no place in Beantown


Jon Lester (8 IP, 0R, 4H, 2BB, 8K) delivers a pitch in the first inning against Kansas City yesterday in Boston. The disappointing Red Sox signed SS Steven Drew in attempt to solve two problems: poor defense up the middle and too many men left on base. Did it work? Drew is OK at defense; at .143, he never gets on base, so he’s never LOB.
