Lester Perfect for Red Sox in Win Over Cardinals

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Jon Lester pitched two scoreless innings in his first start of spring training, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.      

Lester retired all six batters he faced, striking out one. He needed 24 pitches - 17 strikes - to get through the two innings, six in the second inning. All but one of Lester's pitches were fastballs.       

Rafael Furcal was the designated hitter for St. Louis. He went 0 for 2 as he is working to return from a strained ligament in his throwing elbow that cut short his season. He recently received a cortisone shot in that elbow to help with a painful bone spur.       

Daniel Descalso homered to right in the fifth inning for the Cardinals.
