D-backs fall for second time to Red Sox

June 16, 2010 by  

Over the last month and a half Boston Red Sox starter Jon Lester has been one of the best in baseball going 8-0 with a 2.18 ERA. Today the Arizona Diamondbacks saw why he has been so successful. Lester pitched seven innings and allowed only four hits and two runs while striking out seven.

Rodrigo Lopez did not fair as well for Arizona allowing six runs on ten hits in seven innings in the 6-2 loss in Fenway. Sam Demel made his first appearance for the D-backs and looked impressive. Demel did not allow a base runner and struck out one in his inning. Demel thre 13 pitches, 9 of which were strikes.

For only the second time in the last ten games Justin Upton did not strike out. Upton, hitting in the seventh spot went 2-for-3 on the day with a walk and knocked in both of Arizona’s runs. With Chris Young on base in the second inning Upton hit a 2-run homer which at the time tied the score.

Chandler AZ resident and former ASU star Dustin Pedroia hit his ninth homer of the eyar and went 2-for-4 on the day.

The D-backs try to take one in Fenway tomorrow when they send Dan Haren to the mound.
