Jon Lester, who started for the Red Sox the night before, watched the manhunt for suspect No.2 along with the rest of the country, after Friday night's game with the Royals was canceled for safety reasons. Here's his reaction to the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, accused of placing a bomb at Monday's Boston Marathon.
