Jon Lester Says He ‘Just Didn’t Have It’ in Loss to Blue Jays


Jon Lester entered Tuesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays on a roll. He had won four in a row, and he looked like the ace that Red Sox fans expect him to be.

But Lester struggled a bit versus the Jays, particularly early on. He allowed five runs — including three in the first inning — on seven hits through 5 1/3 innings. The Sox eventually fell to the Jays 7-6 in 10 innings, handing Lester a no-decision.

The lefty said he didn't have good command in his Tuesday start and that he has to do a better job of minimizing the damage.
