Red Sox southpaw Jon Lester pitched six innings of three-hit ball Sunday, allowing just one run. He struck out three Royals batters and walked four, improving to 13-6 on the season. Catcher Jason Varitek hit his first triple since June 24, 2007. The 29-year-old captain plated Jed Lowrie in the fifth inning with his three-bagger, which found the gap in right-center field. Here’s what Lester, Varitek and Red Sox skipper Terry Francona had to say after the 6-1 victory.
