Lester's journey

Boston.com
Lester made his Major League debut against the Texas Rangers on June 10, 2006. He pitched 4 1/3 innings, giving up three earned runs on five hits while walking four and striking out four. He earned a no decision with, ironically, Julian Tavarez -- the man he will replace in the Sox rotation -- taking the loss in relief.
