Cubs SP Jon Lester K's 14 Rockies in 3-2 victory Wednesday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/15) Cubs starter Jon Lester was terrific on Wednesday afternoon, as he struck out a season-high 14 batters, en route to the 3-2 win over the Rockies. Lester allowed two runs on five hits over eight solid innings, as he threw 77 of his 117 pitches for strikes.

Lester (6-8) gave up a run in the fourth, and another in the seventh on a Carlos Gonzalez solo home run. Other than that, he kept the Rockies at bay with the 14 whiffs. Lester recorded the most amount of strikeouts in a game by a Cubs pitcher since 2004, and he's the only Cubs left-hander to strikeout 14 batters in a game since at least 1914. 

"That was his best performance all year," said Cubs manager Joe Maddon, per MLB.com. "Just stuff-wise, I thought he had everything going on. … Everything was on and that's why you saw the result you did."

Lester has pitched at least seven innings in each of his past seven starts, going 2-2 with a 1.66 ERA over that stretch.

Cubs SP Jon Lester performs well in no-decision

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/24/15) Cubs lefty Jon Lester had to wait two months to earn his last victory Saturday. A second consecutive victory was apparently too much to ask for no matter how well he performed.

And Lester did pitch well Friday against Philadelphia. He surrendered just two runs on seven hits in seven innings with no walks and six strikeouts. He left with a 3-2 lead, which his bullpen promptly blew.

His line hiccup, which occurred after a disputed ball call that could have resulted in a strikeout, was slammed off the fence for a two-run double by Cody Asche in the fourth inning.

Lester, who allowed no more than one baserunner in any other inning, has recorded five quality starts in July. He has been unscored-upon in four of them and has shrunk his ERA to 3.32, its lowest point since May 27.

Cubs SP Jon Lester flirts with no-hitter, picks up win

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/18/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester had a no-hitter going after seven innings of work, but gave up two hits in the eighth inning against the Braves on Saturday.

Lester enjoyed one of his best outings of the season, as he struck out seven batters and gave up just one walk.

Lester improved to 5-8 on the season with a 3.37 ERA in 117 2/3 innings of work.

Cubs SP Jon Lester no match for Sale on Saturday

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/11/15) Cubs starter Jon Lester gave up two runs in the first inning Saturday.

Game over. Chris Sale was pitching for the White Sox.

Lester recovered to allow four runs on seven hits in seven innings with no walks and eight strikeouts. But it didn't matter - he is now 4-8.

In fact, it was over after three batters as he fell one batter short of giving up the cycle to start the game. Lester allowed a single to Adam Eaton, triple to Tyler Saladino and double to Jose Abreu before settling down. He faced only one batter over the minimum through six before collapsing in the seventh. Two singles, an error and two-run Tyler Flowers double removed all doubt.

The first-inning hiccup ended a two-game shutout streak for the left-hander.

Cubs' Jon Lester takes loss but gets base hit

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/7/15) Cubs starter Jon Lester lost his fifth straight decision, Monday against St. Louis. 

Lester dropped to 4-7 and hasn't won since May 16. 

Lester didn't allow an earned run, the fourth time in the last five starts that he's allowed one earned run or fewer. He has three no-decisions and a loss in those four games. 

Lester surrendered two unearned runs in seven innings. He allowed a season-low two hits and struck out eight, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh.

At the plate, Lester managed to get a single, his first base hit in 67 career at bats.
