PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester allowed one run and struck out four in six-plus innings Monday night in a start for Double-A Portland.
Lester, who was optioned to the Sea Dogs on Thursday, gave up five hits and walked four in an Eastern League game against the Trenton Thunder. He threw 96 pitches.
Lester, who underwent chemotherapy treatments for lymphoma during the offseason, was 2-0 with a 5.67 ERA in six starts with the Red Sox after being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on July 23.
Red Sox officials have said Lester will pitch next for Boston on Sunday.
