Les means more for Boston
Sox lefty leads the charge
Jon Lester continues to astound in his comeback as the lefty was virtually untouchable, beating Baltimore for the second straight time. And not even a fourth-inning fracas started by the O's Daniel Cabrera could spoil what Lester accomplished. With the win, the Sox reduced their magic number to 15.

Series at a glance:
Fracas overshadows loss
The Orioles are simply having no luck at home, but it didn't help that starter Daniel Cabrera was unable to make it out of the fourth; however, it wasn't performance-related. The righty was ejected for his role following a benches-clearing near-melee after he threw behind Boston's Dustin Pedroia.
