BOSTON -- Jon Lester is proving hes Bostons ace again. Raekwon McMillan Womens Jersey . Lester pitched eight dominant innings, and the AL East-leading Red Sox dealt the New York Yankees wild-card hopes another blow with a 5-1 win on Saturday. The 29-year old left-hander is 6-3 since mid-July with a 2.52 ERA in 12 starts after a rough stretch midway through the season. "What hes done since the All Star break has been consistent with how hes started the season," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "A well above-average pitcher, a front-line starter and thats what Jon Lester is." Lester (14-Cool was solid from the start, mixing a sharp cutter with a well-spotted, mid-90s fastball. He allowed one run and three hits, striking out five and walking two for his fourth win in six starts. Midway through the season, he went 0-4 in six starts with a 7.20 ERA. "I knew after what I went through at the middle of the year that its just a matter of time and things will take care of itself," he said. "I think anytime you take someone thats had some success, your confidence is high. When you struggle, that kind of varies from certain starts." Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes and Shane Victorino each had two hits as the surging Red Sox won for the 16th time in 19 games, and beat the Yankees for the fifth time in six meetings in just over a week. Napoli, in his first season with the Red Sox, has seen the best of Lester from the opposite side. "I remember facing him when he had his changeup, its tough because hed throw that cutter in on your hands and a changeup strike when hes just pounding you inside all the time," he said. "Hes been doing great. You can see hes confident out there. Hes just getting the ball and throwing." The Yankees lost their second straight after a three-game winning streak and fell 2 1/2 games behind Tampa Bay for the ALs second wild-card spot. The Rays play at Minnesota on Saturday night. "You have to find a way to get it done is the bottom line," New York manager Joe Girardi said of facing Lester. "Hes been throwing the ball well. He threw it well against us last time and he did it again today, but youve still got to find a way." Boston entered the day with an 8 1/2-game lead over second-place Tampa Bay. The Red Sox (91-59) improved to a season-high 32 games over .500, their best mark since the final day of their World Series championship season in 2004. Franklin Morales worked a perfect ninth. For the second time in week, Boston goes for a sweep against New York. Last weekend, the Red Sox won the initial three of a four-game set at Yankee Stadium but lost the finale. The Red Sox built a 5-1 lead against CC Sabathia (13-13) after five innings. "I felt like I was behind everybody and got into some tough counts," Sabathia said. "With a team like they have, when you get behind and in a hitters count, youre going to give up some hard-hit balls." Will Middlebrooks run-scoring grounder gave Boston a 1-0 edge in the second. Napoli singled before moving up on a walk and sacrifice. In the third, David Ortiz had an RBI double and Gomes added a run-scoring single. Sabathia then fanned the next two hitters with runners on first and third. Lester breezed through the first nine batters, holding the Yankees hitless before Curtis Granderson tripled off the centre field wall leading off the fourth. He scored on Robinson Canos bouncer to first to make it 3-1. But Victorino had a two-out RBI single in the bottom half. Sabathia went six innings, allowing five runs on nine hits, walking four and striking out five. Hes 4-6 with a 6.48 ERA in his last three seasons against the Red Sox. Daniel Navas sacrifice fly increased it to it 5-1. NOTES: Yankees OF Alfonso Soriano was a late scratch with a sprained right thumb and is listed as day to day. He was scheduled to bat cleanup, so Alex Rodriguez was dropped from second to fourth and Vernon Wells moved from right field to left. Ichiro Suzuki, who was not scheduled to be in the lineup, was inserted in right and batted eighth. "It was bothering him yesterday, but it got worse today," Girardi said. ... The Yankees activated RHP David Phelps (strained right forearm) from the 60-day DL and moved Derek Jeter (sore left ankle) to the 60-day DL before the game. "Probably a one-inning guy, not much longer," Girardi said of Phelps role. "He didnt really get a chance to build up (his arm strength) to be a long guy." ... Farrell said LHP Felix Doubront will throw a side session Sunday, a simulated game Tuesday and "likely in the Toronto series (next weekend) in a starting role." Farrell also said Doubront hasnt been used due to "fatigue." ... Ivan Nova (8-4, 3.17 ERA) goes for the Yankees in the series finale against Clay Buchholz (10-0, 1.61 ERA) on Sunday night. Buchholz will be making his second start since coming off the DL. He was out since early June with a strained neck. ... Boston improved to 12-6 against New York. Charles Harris Womens Jersey . The Calgary Stampeders running back received the West Division nomination for the CFLs top individual award Thursday in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada and leagues eight head coaches. Cordrea Tankersley Womens Jersey . -- Downcast before the final game of what had been a difficult road trip, the Ottawa Senators found a way to dig out a little momentum in the desert before heading home. http://www.jerseyshoptheofficialdolphins.com/Elite-Charles-Harris-Dolphins-Jersey/ . On the eve of the 2013-14 NBA season, he can finally take a step back and allow his team to do the talking.LOS ANGELES -- While Derrick Rose headed home to Chicago for knee surgery, the Bulls began life without their superstar guard again. The Los Angeles Clippers showed them just how ugly that life could be. Jared Dudley scored a season-high 21 points, Chris Paul added 16 points and 17 assists, and the Clippers jumped all over the Bulls in Roses absence for a 121-82 victory Sunday. J.J. Redick scored 19 points and Blake Griffin had 15 points and 12 rebounds in the Pacific Division-leading Clippers seventh win in nine games. This was no ordinary blowout, either: The Clippers 39-point margin of victory was the largest in franchise history. The Clippers figured Roses latest injury was weighing on the Bulls minds. Los Angeles led for all but the first two minutes, and even the reserves surged ahead by 42 points in the fourth quarter. "We jumped on them so quickly that I thought it had to have had a mental effect," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "You dont lose a D. Rose. ... We came out and played unbelievable, and I just thought the mental part of that had to be difficult. Very few teams could have fought through that." Luol Deng scored 22 points as the Bulls flopped in their first game since Rose tore cartilage in his right knee Friday night in Portland. Carlos Boozer and Mike Dunleavy scored 14 points apiece, but the Bulls couldnt keep up defensively with the Clippers -- and the Chicago reserves fell apart while getting outscored 25-9 in the fourth quarter. "Its tough for all of us with Derrick being out like this," said Joakim Noah, who had eight points. "Were just hoping for the best with him, and see how it goes. Derrick is a big part of this team. I know how hard he rehabbed this whole time to be on the court." Kirk Hinrich had nine points and seven assists while starting in place of Rose, who missed last season after tearing a ligament in his left knee. Rose played in just 10 games before getting hurt again, but the Bulls are hoping he wont be out as long this time. "Weve done it before," Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said, noting Rose has missed much of the past two seasons since his 2011 MVP campaign. "This is year No. 3 now, so weve got experience doing it," he added. "But weve got to get the fight. Thats the first part of it -- the determination, the fight and thhe will. Raekwon McMillan Jersey. The core of the team in there is the same core we had last year." While Chicago foundered, Los Angeles finished strong in a stretch of four games in five days, surpassing a pair of 37-point wins by the Buffalo Braves during the late 1970s for the biggest margin of victory in franchise history. The Clippers played back-to-back afternoon home games this weekend, an occasional hazard of sharing a building with the Lakers and the NHLs Kings. But a day after blowing a 20-point lead in a victory over Sacramento, the Clippers showed little fatigue from their packed schedule -- and the starters got the fourth quarter off as a reward. "Its the best game this season, we got the opportunity to sit all quarter," Paul said. "Thats huge for our team. This was our fourth game in five nights. We could have come in with a lot of excuses, but we did what we were supposed to do." Los Angeles got out to an early double-digit lead with sharp perimeter shooting from Redick and Dudley, who combined for 29 points in the first half. The Clippers got remarkable performances from the two new additions to their starting lineup, with Dudley and Redick combining to make 16 of their 21 shots. Dudley had the most impressive game of his first season with the Clippers, hitting four 3-pointers while passing his previous season high for points shortly after halftime. Redick was similarly sharp, providing the consistent perimeter scoring Los Angeles sought with his arrival. "When theyre hitting shots like that, man ... " Griffin said. "Even when theyre not, the pressure they put on a defence is great. That contributes to the whole offence." Antawn Jamison finally made his Clippers debut in their 15th game, hitting a 3-pointer in the third quarter for his first basket of his 16th NBA season. Jamison, who moved down the hallway from the Lakers in the off-season, finished with 11 points in 17 minutes. NOTES: The Clippers surpassed their 33-point victory over the Bulls on Feb. 17, 1981, back when the club played in San Diego. ... Chicago has lost three straight to the Clippers. ... Marquis Teague, designated by Thibodeau as Hinrichs new backup, went scoreless with one assist in 20 minutes. ... DeAndre Jordan didnt attempt a shot until Paul found him with a half-court lob for a dramatic dunk with 3:41 left in the third quarter.
