Red Sox lefty Jon Lester allowed five hits en route to a complete game shutout against the Yankees last night.
Andy Pettite lasted only four and two thirds innings pitched, giving up six runs (five were earned).
The silver lining in last night's dismal offensive showing by the Bombers was Robinson Cano's two hits. Cano is 6-12 in his last three games, and is looking like he's finally coming out of the horrific slump that plagued him early in the season.
