Lester Dominates Over Yankees

The Red Sox shut out the Yankees 7-0 in the first game of the series. Lester pitched a complete game shutout, giving up only five hits while striking out eight. Mike Lowell and Jacoby Ellsbury each had two RBIs in the game. Lester is the first Red Sox pitcher since Pedro Martinez, in 2002, to shut out the Yankees.

After the game, Joe Girardi, when asked about what he said to his team, replied:

“That’s between my team and me. We did not play a good game. We didn’t do anything. We didn’t hit, we didn’t pitch. We didn’t play a good game.”

Either that…or they were outclassed by a masterful Lester and don’t want to admit it. The same Yankees lineup that erupted yesterday for 16 runs could have saved some of them for tonight.
