LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Jon Lester fired 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball and Jonny Gomes homered Saturday, handing the Boston Red Sox a 4-2 interleague win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Lester (12-7) controlled the Dodgers on three hits, working around four walks and striking out six before leaving with a 4-0 lead.

After the Red Sox bullpen allowed two runs, Koji Uehara retired the final four batters for his 13th save as Boston recorded its first-ever victory at Dodgers Stadium.

After Mike Napoli delivered an RBI single in the first inning for 1-0 Boston lead, Gomes followed by smacking a homer over the left-centerfield fence, scoring Napoli and Dustin Pedroia ahead of him.

The Red Sox came into the game tied with Tampa Bay atop the American League East.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-5) was touched for four runs on five hits in a five-inning start for NL West-leading Dodgers, whose four-game winning streak was snapped.

Adrian Gonzalez drove in two runs for Los Angeles.
