Baseball This Weekend

[ #30336 ]

Red Sox rookie lefthander Jon Lester, is 22 years old. He has five wins and no losses in eight starts, with a 2.38 ERA. In only his third career start last month he got 10 strikeouts on three hits and one run in six innings.

But tonight, he had his best start so far, giving up only one hit in eight innings (fellow rookie phenom Jon, this one Papelbon, got his 28th save of the year by setting down the side in order in the ninth, combining for the one-hitter).

Lester is also a native of Tacoma, WA, and is scheduled to start Sunday afternoon in Seattle. I hope they give him a nice homecoming; it should be a great game. I'm going to be there with fellow Perl Mongers brian d foy, jmcadams, and cxreg. I'll be at Saturday's game, too.

  • You're cherry-picking. That third start was against the last-place Nationals. The start tonight was against the last-place Royals.

    I have written CPAN modules that could beat the Kansas City Royals. Lester may well develop into a great pitcher, but let's not declare him the second coming of WWW::Mechanize just yet, eh?

    • I never said he was the second coming of anyone ... just that he's had two amazing performances. Sure, it's just the Royals, but how many other pitchers one-hit the Royals?
