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
and Tampa Bay's
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."
