Jon Lester Fans Career-High 15 Batters In Stellar Performance (Video)


Jon Lester pitched a career game Saturday against the Oakland Athletics at Fenway Park, striking out 15 and allowing just one hit and two walks over eight spectacular innings.

The 15 K’s were a personal best for Lester, who was the first Red Sox pitcher to strike out at least 15 batters since Pedro Martinez¬†struck out 16 Tampa Bay Devil Rays on April 8, 2001. Lester’s record is also the most ever by a Red Sox southpaw in a regulation nine-inning game.

Check out every one of Lester’s strikeouts in the video below.
