LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jon Lester pitched three-hit ball into the eighth inning, Jonny Gomes’ three-run homer capped a four-run first, and the Boston Red Sox beat Los Angeles 4-2 on Saturday, snapping the Dodgers’ four-game winning streak.

The Red Sox began the day percentage points behind Tampa Bay for first in the AL East. They won at Dodger Stadium for the first time in five games dating to their first visit in 2002, when they were swept in three games.

Lester (12-7) gave up one run in 7 1-3 innings, struck out six and walked four.

Koji Uehara got the final four outs to earn his 13th save in 16 chances.
