Lesterrible Again

John Lester toed the rubber for the Red Sox. Lester had struggled recently coming into this start, giving up 13 runs in his previous 17 and 1/3 innings. This start was no different for Lester as he surrendered four runs in five innings. Lester also failed once again to keep his pitch count down, throwing 105 pitches in those five innings.

"It is sad to see our offense doing very well to try to help the team win, but unfortunately we couldn't stop them from scoring. I feel pretty bad about it because I feel pretty much responsible calling the game behind the plate. Not to be able to stop them from scoring, it is kind of frustrating." -- 8.8.06, Red Sox catcher Javy Bad Day Lopez on the offense that left 18 men on base last night
