Red Sox | Jon Lester back in groove

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester gave up six hits, walked two and struck out three in 8 1/3 scoreless innings against the San Francisco Giants Monday, Aug. 19. He has a 3.12 ERA in nine starts since the start of July and has walked 14 in 57 2/3 frames. Before that stretch, he had walked 24 over 47 2/3 innings for a 6.99 ERA. "I think anytime you go through some struggles, having a break helps," Lester said. "Pitch selection or mechanics or whatever it may be at that particular time, it felt like a good mental break for me, and I felt good when I came back."
