Jon Lester (12-9) earned the win Tuesday against the Mariners, allowing six hits and four walks over six scoreless frames. He struck out nine.
Lester did not allow a run, but he was far from efficient Tuesday, allowing 11 baserunners and loading the bases in three innings. He was able to record a season high nine strikeouts however. He'll carry a 4.19 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 147:45 K:BB into his next scheduled start Monday at San Diego.
