Jon Lester News Archive
Lester had his best start of the year Friday, throwing seven scoreless innings in a win over the Brewers.
Lester turned in a quality start, allowing three runs on five hits, walking one and striking out 10 over six innings of a Cubs win against the Reds in 11 innings on Friday night. "I got a better feel for my cutter tonight and was able to make some offspeed pitches, which is obviously key against this team," Lester said. "I'm learning. New league, new faces, new guys."
Lester struggled again on Monday, allowing six runs in six innings in a no-decision Monday.
Lester's next start will come Monday at home against the Reds, Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports.
