Terrible sixth inning dooms Cubs SP Jon Lester to defeat

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/15) Cubs starter Jon Lester was rolling merrily along Saturday night against the host Dodgers. Then suddenly he stopped rolling and started skidding.

Lester blew a 2-1 lead by allowing four runs in the seventh inning without retiring a batter. He finished having allowed eight hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in lowering his record to 8-10.

He was doomed by three singles and a double that knocked him out of the game. The double by Jose Peraza and single by Andre Ethier plated three runs.

The poor effort was his second in the last three starts. Lester now owns a 3.59 ERA on the year.

Cubs SP Jon Lester narrowly misses complete game shutout

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/24/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester went 8 2/3 innings without allowing a run in Monday's start against the Indians.

Lester gave up a game-tying run with two outs in the ninth and was pulled from the game. He struck out six batters while allowing just one walk in a no-decision.

Lester (8-9) has a 3.44 ERA in 157 innings of work this season.

Cubs SP Jon Lester gets rocked for seven runs in loss to Tigers

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/20/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester suffered one of his worst starts of the season on Wednesday against the Tigers.

Lester allowed seven runs on seven hits before being pulled after just 2 2/3 innings. He gave up three walks and three home runs in the ugly loss.

With the loss, Lester dropped to 8-9 on the season and his ERA ballooned to 3.58.

Cubs' Jon Lester pitches team to seventh straight victory Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/13/15) Cubs left-hander Jon Lester was excellent in his start against the Brewers on Thursday afternoon. Lester went six innings, allowing two runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out 10 in the 9-2 Cubs' win.

Lester (8-8, 3.21 ERA) allowed a run in the third and one in the sixth, but was otherwise on top of his game. The 10 strikeouts led to a high pitch count--105 through six innings--which was at least partially to blame for the quick exit. 

Still, Lester was able to turn in his fifth consecutive quality start. In those five outings, Lester is 4-0 with a 2.04 ERA.

Cubs' Jon Lester wins third straight decision

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
