Cody Ross made his first return to Fenway Park as an opposing player a memorable one as he rapped out four hits, including a home run and two doubles, in Arizona's 7-6 win over the Red Sox. The loss snapped Boston's winning streak at three games.

Jon Lester started for Boston and lasted just 4.1 innings, his shortest outing of the year. He was charged with six runs on eleven hits. He didn't walk anyone, but it was obvious from the start that this wasn't going to be one of his better outings. With one out in the top of the first inning, Lester served up Paul Goldschmidt's twentyfifth home run of the year which put the Red Sox behind 2-0. David Ortiz (pictured) tied the game up with his twentyfirst blast of the year in the bottom of the inning.

Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew each had two hits in the losing effort. Drew also hit his eighth home run in the sixth.
