What A ‘Bay’; Jasons Hits Two Home Runs To Give Sox Win

Jason Bay and Jason Varitek combined for 5 of the 6 runs the Red Sox scored against the Baltimore Orioles. Jason Bay hit a solo Home Run in the second inning, stole a base and then in the 8th inning, hit a 2 run home run to put the Sox up by a few.

Jon Lester went 7 innings giving up 1 run and apparently that is all Jon Lester needed to get his 12th win of the season and winning 9 of the last 10 games. He has been very consitant for Boston and he just seems to get better through each start.

Papelbon came in the 9th to close the game out at Fenway Park Camden Yards in Baltimore. The crowd is very pro-Red Sox that it feels like home. Papelbon moves into 2nd place for total career saves in Red Sox history with 105. The career leader is at 132 saves.
