"We played great," Pedroia said. "Jon threw the ball, it was unbelievable. It seems like we were barely on defense."

Farrell reiterated he didn't think Ryan Dempster hit Alex Rodriguez on purpose a night earlier — and Farrell doesn't foresee any punishment from Major League Baseball.

"I don't expect them to do anything," he said. "My view is that it was not intentional."

Notes: A moment of silence and a video slideshow of still photos were held before the national anthem. The Giants wore Boston Strong patches. ... Lester is 12-5 in 24 career interleague outings. At AT&T Park, he owns a 0.52 ERA in two starts. ... Giants CF Angel Pagan, recovering from left hamstring surgery, could join Triple-A Fresno for a rehab assignment in the next few days. ... LHP Jeremy Affeldt, on the DL since July 21 with a strained left groin, is slated to throw off the mound in the coming days. ... Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli missed his third straight game with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Manager John Farrell is optimistic he will play Tuesday. "He's responding well to treatment he's getting on his foot," Farrell said. ... Lester, Tuesday starter Jake Peavy and newly activated catcher David Ross flew out ahead of the team to the Bay Area. ... The Giants dropped to 4-11 in interleague play.
