Jon Lester was the difference this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees scored some runs off the Red Sox bullpen, but the seven scoreless innings from Lester left the Yankees with a 7-3 loss that was their fourth straight. Ivan Nova took his first big league loss, and the Yankees bullpen didn’t do a whole lot to pick him up. The Yankees offense managed just two hits off Lester before getting a two-run home run by Curtis Granderson and a solo home run by Alex Rodriguez off the Boston pen.
