One-Third The Way Done

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
One-Third The Way DoneThe 2011 season is now 1/3 completed for the Red Sox, and it fell on Memorial Day. They are 30-24 at this juncture. They are on a pace to win 90 games, but I think if they avoid losing 10 of 12 twice more, they should easily reach 90 wins.
Jon Lester clearly didn't have it last night, and he struggled mightily in Chicago's 7-3 win. He threw a season-high 127 pitches, and Terry Francona is surely facing criticism from many quarters as to why he left him in the 6th inning with the bases loaded and two outs and the score tied.
Lester's final pitch of the night was a bloop double that brought in two runs by Alexei Ramirez. Dan Wheeler came and immediately gave up a two-run single to Carlos Quentin.
Adrian Gonzalez hit his 10th home run of 2011 off former Padres teammate Jake Peavy. Dustin Pedroia singled in two runs and that sums up the Red Sox highlights for the night.
New York won in Oakland so the Red Sox are tied for first place in the AL East.
