BOSTON — Red Sox ace Jon Lester pitched a gem against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series, scattering five hits while striking out eight over 7.2 scoreless innings en route to an 8-1 Boston drubbing for an early 1-0 series lead.
But did he have some extra help in shutting down the St. Louis attack?
According to Cardinals minor league pitcher Tyler Melling, the answer to that question is a resounding yes.
We can clearly see something on the inside of Lester’s glove, though what that may be is nothing but pure speculation.
What can’t be disputed, however, is that Lester did rub his fingers on that spot throughout the game, as caught in a vine that has quickly begun to circulate around the web.
