Lester Makes Triumpahnt Return Bo-Sox Beat Tribe 6-2

Right now it seems sometimes that I am writing for the Police Blotter rather than about Sports. With NFL quarterbacks being indicted on dog fighting charges, and NBA referees being investigated on possibly "fixing" games, it is a pleasant change when I can write a story that makes us feel good. Boston Red Sox starter Jon Lester made a triumphant return to the Major Leagues Monday night almost a year after being diagnosed with cancer and went six innings scattering just five hits and two runs and defeated the Cleveland Indians 6-2. Lester's parents made the trip to Cleveland to watch their son's 2007 MLB debut, and they got to see a great performance. Lester kept the Indians off balance for most of the game, in spite of the fact that the Indians have one of the best home records in the Majors this season. Former Indian Coco Crisp was the Boston offensive catalyst going 4-5 and scoring three runs. Jake Westbrook took the loss for Cleveland.
