Jon Lester got what he needed most at Fenway Park yesterday and so did his teammates. They got him runs and he got them outs.

Keep this up and the burial plot may prove to have been purchased a bit prematurely for these maddening Red Sox.

Lester had his moments both good and bad — as has been his pattern all season — in yesterday's 10-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays but in the end what mattered most happened. He won. What else is there, really?
