Lester Owns The O’s As The Sox Mash Unit Continues To Shine

BOSTON (AP) – Jon Lester pitched seven strong innings to remain

undefeated against Baltimore in 12 career decisions, Kevin Youkilis

homered and drove in three runs, and the Boston Red Sox beat the

Orioles 9-3 on Saturday night.

Boston has won 17 of its last 19 games in Fenway Park against

the Orioles.

J.D. Drew had three hits and drove in pair of runs with a

first-inning double after connecting for a pair of solo homers in

Boston's win on Friday night.

Lester is 12-0 against Baltimore in 15 starts, matching Red

organization. Faber did it in 1914-16, according to Elias Sports


Lester (10-3) gave up a run and five hits, striking out seven

and walking one in his 10th win in his last 11 decisions.
