Jon Lester sees his Game-7 start as a chance at redemption after his bad start and credited the losing decision in Game-3. Previously, Lester had pitched the Red Sox to 7-0 in games against Tampa Bay.
“Obviously, any time you don't pitch up to par, you want to get back on the mound and prove to yourself and to other people that you can pitch," Lester said. "Tomorrow, hopefully, I can go out and pitch like I pitched all year and keep going, and we can keep going forward.”
The Red Sox, who twice this decade rallied from 3-1 deficits to win the pennant and then the World Series, have a chance to do it an unprecedented third time in five years when the series resumes in Tropicana Field.
