Pedey's Wall-Ball Saves Lester's Gem

Jon Lester was dealing tonight but the offense was struggling against the Royals starter, Brian Bannister. Lester went 8 shutout innings giving up just 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 8.

Ellsbury had the only hit (he was thrown out at the plate and ejected for arguing the call) for the Red Sox until the 8th inning when Kotsay led up with a single. Green bunted him over to second with 2 strikes putting the go-ahead run a second. The table was set for J.D. Drew but he wiffed putting the pressure on Pedroia. Dustin came through with a wall-ball double scoring Kotsay and giving the Sox all the runs they would need.

Papelbon had good stuff and finally put Red Sox Nation at ease with three quick outs preserving the win for Boston.

Cousins had his back to Ells when he spiked his helmet. How in the hell did he know about it? And after review, Eck says he thought Ells was safe. Looks that way to me, too.
