Jon Lester was about as dominant as a Red Sox pitcher has been all year. The lefty tossed 8 1/3 shutout innings at the Giants last night on the way to a 7-0 win over San Francisco. Shane Victorino and Daniel Nava each had three-hit nights—and Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Stephen Drew had multi-hit games to spark the offense. The win kept The Carmine Hose alone in first place by one game over the Rays, who also won.
