Red Sox suffer doubly painful loss to Yanks

NEW YORK -- While the Red Sox endured a 9-5 loss to the Yankees on Friday, that defeat took a back seat to the status of pitcher Jon Lester. Lester left the game with one out in the bottom of the third after Melky Cabrera lined a ball off of the inside of the pitcher's right knee. The Red Sox said that X-rays showed no fracture, and the pitcher is day-to-day with what is being described as a contusion of the right groin.
 
Before the injury, Lester was amidst his worst start in four months. The Yankees jumped on him for eight hits and five runs in 2.1 innings, with an Alex Rodriguez two-run homer doing the most significant damage. Lester threw 78 pitches in his brief outing.
 
With the Texas Rangers having defeated the Tampa Bay Rays, the Red Sox' magic number to clinch a playoff berth remains at three. The Yankees' magic number to clinch the American League East, meanwhile, is now at three.

UPDATE: Lester leaves game after being hit on knee by liner

NEW YORK -- Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester left Friday's game after Melky Cabrera lined a single off the inside of the pitcher's right knee in the bottom of the third inning. Lester immediately collapsed on the mound. He was attended to by Red Sox trainers, but was able to get back to his feet with some assistance. He limped off the field under his own power.
 
X-rays taken of the pitcher at Yankee Stadium were negative. He was diagnosed with what was described as a contusion of the right quad. He is described as day-to-day. Lester left with the Red Sox trailing, 4-0, with one out in the bottom of the third. He had given up all of the runs on eight hits and three walks. He needed 78 pitches to labor through the outing prior to the injury.
