Daisuke Matsuzaka went five innings only allowing two hits while striking out for to improve to 9-1 on the season with a little help from a J.D. Drew three run homer in the third inning.
Dustin Pedroia added to the score in the seventh with an RBI single giving Boston a 4-0 lead and they never looked back as Jonathan Papelbon closed the door over 1 1/3 innings pitched for his 24th save of the season.
Star of the Game: Dice-K
A solid outing from the Japanese star who pitched better than he did in his first start since coming back off the DL.
Next Game: Lester vs Backe
The offense seems to be cruising a little here so Lester just needs a solid six inning effort and leave it up to the bullpen who have been much better as of late.
