Jon Lester’s first-inning blowup

Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester started the bottom of the first by going 2-1 on Lorenzo Cain. 2-1 is a fastball count and Cain got one: 94 miles an hour’s worth. Lorenzo turned it around and doubled over left fielder Jonny Gomes head. Nobody out, score 0-0, runner on second; it was Eric Hosmer’s job to make sure Lorenzo moved from second to third base by the time Hosmer’s AB was over—Hosmer got the job done.
