Extra Bases

Sizemore takes Lester deep

CLEVELAND – Grady Sizemore has homered to right field with Josh Barfield aboard to make it a 5-2 game with the Sox in front.

Lester got beat on what looked to be a cut fastball over the plate.

Lester also walked Casey Blake in the inning but struck out the dangerous Tarvis Hafner on his hardest pitch of the night – 93 – to get out of the third and minimize the damage.
