Lester hitting for himself here. At 104 pitches...I like it. Was strongest in last 2 innings. Unless he's still coming out. Then I don't.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Looks like Jose Abreu might be hurt, after a weird play on a tag. He's on the ground and seemingly grabbing his side.

Lester at 92 pitches after 5 pretty stressful innings. Prob one left in him. Does have 8 K's so that's a good sign.
