Jon Lester showed no rust in making his first start with the Red Sox in '07, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings in the Sox's opener win over the Indians. Boston provided some early support with a four-run first, keyed by Manny Ramirez's two-run double.
Jake Westbrook got off to a slow start in the opener against the Red Sox, and it proved to be too much for the Indians to overcome. The Tribe starter allowed five runs over the first two innings to fall to 1-6. Grady Sizemore belted a two-run homer, his 17th of the season.
