The Red Sox and Orioles are through another inning with no score.
While Lester is through two scoreless now, and in relatively short order, between the double in the first inning and a loud fly out from Matt WIeters in the second, there has been some decent contact off of him. The man that reached in the second, however, did so on a weak infield single, and then was quickly erased by way of the double play as Dustin Pedroia dug a low throw out of the dirt and made a strong throw to first to beat the slow-running Mark Reynolds.
The Sox, for their part, got a one-out single from J.D. Drew, but couldn’t do so much as move him to second as Marco Scutaro and Carl Crawford both flew out.
Meanwhile, in Tampa, New York’s starter Dellin Betances seems to think that the zone starts at the waist given how high he’s throwing everything. Then again, given that not much is hitting the zone, he might not know at all. At the very least, however, he escaped unharmed after putting two men on with one out.
