Big day for the Red Sox today. Jon Lester took the win after pitching seven strong innings of shutout ball, striking out six and scattering five hits. He is now 2-0 on the season. The story of the day though is the offense which clubbed six home runs, three by Will Middlebrooks and one each by Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, and Daniel Nava.
PLAYER OF THE GAME:
WILL MIDDLEBROOKS (4 for 5, 3 home runs, 2B, 4 RBI)
