Jon Lester Records Another Quality Start, Continues Streak of Dominance Since All-Star Break (Video)

1,189

A four-run first inning was all the offense Jon Lester needed to lead the Red Sox past the surging Dodgers Saturday afternoon.

Jonny Gomes‘ three run homer capped the productive inning, and Lester was dominant on the mound, allowing only 3 hits and one earned run, while striking out six over 7 1/3 innings. The left-hander has found his groove in the second half of the season, posting a 2.31 ERA and striking out 38 in 46 2/3 innings over seven starts.

Check out the above video to hear what he had to say about his start, as well as what Xander Bogaerts told NESN’s Jenny Dell about what he will do with the ball from his first major league hit.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
