Jon Lester Struggles in Red Sox Loss to Twins

If you haven't received the memo, Jon Lester historically struggles at the beginning of seasons.

It seems that 2010 is no different.

Lester allowed four runs, nine hits and three walks in his five innings of work. It would be all the Twins would need en route to a 5-2 victory over Boston.

Game notes:

  • David Ortiz had an RBI double and then proceeded to give one word answers to the press after the game. He also struck out twice. What a shocker.
  • Marco Scutaro went 2 for 4 at the leadoff spot.
  • Jacoby Ellsbury missed today's game after colliding with Adrian Beltre on Sunday. He may miss a few more games.
  • Dustin Pedroia hit a sac fly in the 8th to score Jeremy Hermida for Boston's last run.
  • Mike Cameron allllmost hit a home run. But it was deemed foul after replay.
  • The Red Sox have never won a game at Target Field. Yes, a .000 winning percentage. We hope they can finally break through on Wednesday.

John Lackey on Wednesday.
