Jon Lester took the mound for the Red Sox yesterday in a must-win (at this point pretty much all of the games are must-win when you are in a wild-card race) against the White Sox opposite John Danks.
And Lester was on form, picking up his 12th win of the season, 3rd in the last 4 outings, and has not taken a loss since July 19th. Here is the line:
7.0 IP, 4 hits, 0 runs, 0 earned runs, 2 BB, and 8 K's.
Lester's ERA stands at 3.58 and has 198 K's on the season.
