Jon Lester threw eight innings of three-hit ball tonight.  It was one of the best starts he's had this year, and the offense was in good-enough shape to back him up.  J.D. Drew was particularly on, going 4-for-4 with two homers.

In other news, Wandy Rodriguez brought it back tonight.  Like Lester, he threw eight innings and almost got a complete game.

Hunter Pence and Carlos Lee homered.  Jose Valverde came in with the bases loaded and got the save pretty easily, at least in comparison to last night.
