Player Notes
Jon Lester lasted just 4 2/3 innings on Tuesday, giving up eight runs -- three earned -- on 11 hits in a loss to the Yankees.

Advice: Lester didn't get much help from his defense -- four runs scored after a fielding error by Brian Roberts kept the Yankees alive in the fifth inning -- but the left-hander didn't do much to help himself, either. Lester walked four to go with his 11 hits allowed. He did strike out seven in the outing as well. He'll try to get back on the right track Sunday at the Blue Jays.

Jon Lester tossed eight strong outings, allowing just one run and striking out nine, in defeating the White Sox on Thursday.

Advice: Lester cost himself in the sixth, when he was too slow to get over to first base on Adam Eaton's run-scoring infield single, and again in the seventh, when he failed to handle a pretty easy comebacker. But fielding issues aside -- and his awkward throws to first likely will lose him a game at some point -- he's been outstanding on the mound. He's currently sporting a 29/4 K/BB ratio in 29 innings and a 2.03 ERA. Next up for him is his second start of the month against the Yankees.
