Youkilis and Lester help Red Sox beat Kazmir, Rays

Jon Lester‘s expanding repertoire helped Boston finish off a three-game sweep of Tampa Bay. Kevin Youkilis had four RBIs and Lester pitched six innings to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 7-3 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday, spoiling the return of Rays ace Scott Kazmir. “He’s taken steps to be a more complete pitcher,” Sox captain Jason Varitek said of Lester.

Bot Thoughts: Finally, the Sox get past Scott Kazmir. He has been so tough on them for so long. He will continue to be tough for the rest of his career against Boston, but for this game the Sox bats were hot and prevailed. It was also good to see Kevin Youkilis wake up from his offensive-slumber.
