Lester wins duel as Price exits with injury

ESPN's Nomar Garciaparra and Sean McDonough broke down how the Red Sox were able to end the Rays' six-game winning streak.

The anticipated pitching duel of top left-handers between Sox ace Jon Lester and Tampa Bay's David Price never materialized. Lester improved to 6-0, but Price struggled before leaving in the third inning with a strained left triceps.

"[Lester] was out there pounding that strike zone, and that's always good to see," Garciaparra said, adding that Lester has been great at stopping Boston losing streaks, "winning four games after a Red Sox loss. That's what you want out of your ace."
