Lester Set To Face Off Against Rays’ Price

The unbeaten Jon Lester looks to help the visiting Boston Red Sox avoid a 10th loss in 12 games as David Price, stuck on one win, tries to lift the Tampa Bay Rays to a seventh consecutive victory Wednesday night.


As good as Lester has been, Buchholz has been even better. Buchholz became baseball’s first five-game winner with a 7-2 victory over the Astros, making him a perfect 5-0 with five quality starts this season. He’s allowed just five earned runs over 37.2 innings of work for a 1.19 ERA, and is second on the team with 39 strikeouts. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)
