Cubs SP Jon Lester flashes dominance in seven-inning outing

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/1/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester was dominant on Wednesday against the Mets.

Lester threw seven innings, allowed juts five hits and no runs in a no-decision. He struck out seven batters was in constant control before being pulled from the 2-0 victory.

Lester (4-6) has a 3.74 ERA with 93 strikeouts and 28 walks in 96 1/3 innings this season.

Cubs SP Jon Lester struggles in loss on Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/25/15) Cubs left-hander Jon Lester battled, but ultimately had a disappointing outing on Thursday, as the Cubs fell to the Dodgers 4-0. Lester had trouble with his command, as he walked four and struck out five over four innings. He gave up four runs on four hits, needing 75 pitches to get through the fourth.

Lester was hit early and often, as he gave up two runs in each of the first two innings, and was never able to get into a rhythm in this one. This was Lester's shorted outing this year, as his ERA increased to 4.03 on the year.

"It's hard to pitch when you're ball one, ball two all the time," Lester said, per ESPN.com. "It's frustrating right now because all the work is there. I feel good going into starts. I'm just searching for things."

Cubs SP Jon Lester gives up one run in no-decision on Saturday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/20/15) Cubs left-hander Jon Lester turned in a solid performance in his start on Saturday against the Twins. Lester struck out seven over 6 1/3 innings, allowing just a single run on three hits while walking three. But he was left with a no-decision, as the Cubs won the game in extra innings. Lester left the game after throwing 102 pitches.

"I never [want to come out]," Lester said, per MLB.com. "That's the way I've always been. I don't want to leave games. That's why you have managers and pitching coaches to make those decisions for you. I may not be happy at the time, but I'll never second-guess the manager on what he's trying to do."

The only run Lester gave up came on a solo home run by Kurt Suzuki in the second inning. He cut his ERA down to 3.80. Over his last two starts, the veteran lefty has allowed two runs in 13 1/3 innings pitched.

He's set to square off against the Dodgers at home on Thursday.

Cubs SP Jon Lester tosses seven innings in no-decision

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/15/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester had great stuff during Sunday's 2-1 win over the Reds.

Lester threw seven innings and allowed just one earned run. He struck out four batters and allowed five hits, but earned a no-decision as the game went all the way into the 11th inning tied at a run apiece.

Lester (4-5) has a 3.99 ERA with 74 strikeouts in 79 innings of work this season.

Cubs manager Maddon not worried about Jon Lester

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/13/15) Cubs ace Jon Lester has been anything but recently, racking up 11 earned runs and 18 hits over his last two starts, leading some to wonder what is wrong with the lefty. 

But don't count manger Joe Maddon among those who is worried. Per ESPN.com, the skipper said he "isn't concerned" about the pitcher's poor recent outings. 

"If he has a couple of bad outings, it doesn't bother me in the least. If a guy is good and he's not injured, he's OK," Maddon said. 

Lester, who is scheduled to pitch Sunday, is 4-5 with a 4.25 ERA in 12 starts this season and 0-2 with a 10.61 ERA in June.
