Nationals Vs. Red Sox Score Update: Boston Leads 2-1 At Midway Point

Jon Lester has dominated the Washington Nationals lineup through five innings, allowing just one run on three hits while striking out four, as the Boston Red Sox lead the Nats 2-1 at Fenway Park.

The Nationals were able to open the scoring on an RBI groundout by Ryan Zimmerman in the bottom of the first, but the Red Sox answered with a run in the third and a David Ortiz home run in the fourth to gain the lead.

Jordan ZImmerman has allowed those two runs on four hits while striking out five through the first four innings on the mound.
