Jon Lester Bobbles Jose Iglesias Bunt, Manages to Scoop Ball, Flip It to Mike Napoli for Out (GIF)


Jose Iglesias has been a bit of a defensive wizard this season, but he got a taste of his own medicine Thursday night during Game 5.

Iglesias laid down a bunt in the fifth inning, and Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester hustled to glove the ball and ended up bobbling it, then scooping it up with enough time to make a hands-free toss to Mike Napoli at first base for the out. Iglesias disputed the call, but was ultimately sent back to the Tigers’dugout.

Check out Lester’s hustle play in the GIF below.

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.
