Jon Lester makes solid play to retire Pete Kozma

The Cardinals gave away an out when they needed a run, but only because Jon Lester was on the spot.


Pete Kozma is so bad at hitting that the Cardinals used him to bunt in order to move a runner into scoring position for Adam Wainwright, who is definitely a pitcher.

To Kozma's credit, he put down a well-placed bunt that required a strong play from Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester to get the out:


Lester struck out Wainwright and Matt Carpenter, leaving David Freese stranded at second base.
