BOSTON -- Jon Lester has found a cure for his early-season struggles. Now if he could just get some run support.

Lester limited the Tampa Bay Rays to three runs over seven innings, but the Sox managed just two runs off David Price in a battle of ace lefties, sending the Sox to a 3-2 loss, their ninth in 11 games.

Lester has allowed three earned runs in his last 14 innings, but is 0-1 in those starts. The Red Sox lost both games, scoring just three runs in the two contests.
