BOSTON -- Jon Lester didnt feel very good warming up before the game. He couldnt have done much better once it started. The lefty struck out a career-high 15, allowing one hit over eight scoreless innings and pitching the Boston Red Sox over the Oakland Athletics 6-3 on Saturday. "Its probably the worst cutter Ive thrown in a bullpen in a long time, but I dont take much stock in my bullpens anymore," Lester said. "Youre down there to get loose. I think the biggest thing for me is just getting on the mound and getting that adrenaline going." He faced 26 batters and just nine hit the ball in fair territory. The only As to reach base against him were Craig Gentry on a leadoff single in the third and Derek Norris on walks to start the fifth and eighth. "Just the combination of power and command was impressive," Boston manager John Farrell said. "He was locked in seemingly from the first pitch." Lester (3-4) got plenty of support on a grand slam by Jonny Gomes and solo homers by David Ortiz and David Ross in Bostons second straight win after losing a day-night doubleheader to Tampa Bay on Thursday. But Oakland scored three runs off Chris Capuano in the ninth and had the tying run at the plate before Koji Uehara struck out Alberto Callaspo and retired Brandon Moss on a fly to right, securing his seventh save in seven opportunities. "I knew we had it the whole way," Lester said. "Weve got the best closer in baseball out there." The only hit off Lester was Gentrys bloop single in the third over the head of second baseman Dustin Pedroia. "Thats the best performance Ive seen him have," Oaklands Nick Punto said. Lester rebounded from taking the loss in his previous two games by striking out nine of his first 13 batters. His previous strikeout best was 13 on July 24, 2010, in a 5-1 loss at Seattle. "He looked pretty cozy out there," Gomes said. Lester, who threw a no-hitter on May 19, 2008 against Kansas City, struck out every hitter in the Oakland lineup, fanning Josh Reddick three times and Punto, Callaspo, Coco Crisp and Josh Donaldson twice each. Gomes hit the fifth slam of his career one day after Pedroia hit one. Tommy Milone (0-3) allowed Gomes homer after Pedroia walked, Xander Bogaerts singled and Ortiz walked. "It always seems that every time you walk somebody they have a tendency of scoring," Milone said, "so it just took that one big hit from Gomes to set the tone." Milone struck out the next four batters but ran into trouble again in the third when Ortiz led off with his sixth homer of the year. Ross started the fourth with his third homer. Lester threw 119 pitches before being replaced by Capuano to start the ninth. In his previous two starts, Lester threw 118 pitches in a 7-2 loss to the New York Yankees on April 22 and 122 in a 4-1 loss at Toronto last Sunday. Punto started the ninth with a double and took third on a single by Crisp. Both scored when Jed Lowrie doubled and left fielder Gomes threw wildly to the plate for an error. After Donaldson was hit by a pitch, Uehara walked Yoenis Cespedes. Norris hit into a forceout at home, but catcher Ross throw to first went wild, allowing a run to score before Uehara ended the threat. "Its easy to just cash it in after youve struck out 15 times in eight innings and hadnt had too many good swings and youre frustrated," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said, "and then to get those kind of at-bats in the ninth inning, its good." NOTES: Capuano hadnt allowed a run in his other 12 outings this season. ... Pedroia has reached base 35 times in his last 17 games. ... The Athletics have scored no runs while Milone was in the game in his three losses. ... Sonny Gray (4-1) pitches for Oakland in the finale of the three-game series against John Lackey (4-2) on Sunday. ...

According to BBC.com United paid French club Monaco six million pounds for Falcaos services for the remainder of the 2014-15 season. Falcao has scored 11 goals in 20 appearances in Ligue 1 since joining Monaco in May, 2013. The club paid Atletico Madrid a reported 50 million pounds for Falcaos services and signed the striker to a five-year deal. The 28-year-old has been nominated for the FIFA Ballon dOr in each of the past two seasons, finishing fifth in voting in 2012 and 11th in 2013. A severe knee injury cut his 2013-14 season short, limiting the striker to just 17 league games with Monaco. He would still score nine goals in those appearances. The injury would, however, force him out of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, delivering a blow to the chances of the highly-ranked Colombian squad. The team would still advance to the quarter-finals of the tournament behind the strong play of eventual Golden Boot-winner James Rodriguez. Falcao has appeared in 51 interrnationals for Colombia, scoring 20 career goals.dddddddddddd. Falcaos career began with Argentinean side River Plate in 2005. He would appear in 90 games with River over the next four seasons before Portuguese club Porto acquired his services for a fee of just under 4 million euros. The Colombian would dominate over parts of the next three seasons with Porto, scoring 41 goals in 51 league matches and 22 in 24 combined games between the UEFA Europa and Champions leagues, highlighted by helping the club win the 2010-11 Europa Championship. In the early stages of the 2011-12 season he would be transferred to Spanish side Atletico Madrid for a reported 40 million euros. His impact with Atletico would be immediate as he would guide Atletico to the 2012 Europa League Championship, leading the competition in scoring for a second straight season. The victory would earn Atletico its third ever berth in the Champions League. Falcao would score 52 goals in 68 league matches and 13 goals in 17 European appearances over parts of two seasons for Ateltico.
