Cubs LHP Jon Lester finally lights-out in Friday start

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/15) Perhaps a flip of the calendar from April to May was all it took for Cubs newcomer Jon Lester to find himself on the mound.

Lester, who had improved the last two starts, put it all together Friday in a shutout win over Milwaukee. He gave up just three hits with one walk and four strikeouts in seven innings. He shrunk his ERA from 6.23 to 4.71 in the process.

"This is a big day for me, personally," Lester said, per MLB.com. "It always goes back to your first start in Spring Training, your first start of the season, get that first 'W.' Obviously, I would've liked to have had it happen a little while ago, but that's not the case. Today's a big day. We'll celebrate this, have some fun with it, and tomorrow, back to work."

The left-hander struck out Wily Peralta with the bases loaded in the second, then cruised. He really locked in late, retiring the last 10 batters he faced.

Lester will try to take his momentum and run with it next Wednesday in St. Louis.

Cubs starter Jon Lester remains winless, takes no-decision Friday

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester allowed three runs on five hits and struck out 10 in six innings of work Friday for a no-decision, remaining winless on the season.

Lester's three runs allowed came on two groundouts and a sacrifice fly.

"I'm learning," Lester said, who had spent his whole career in the American League. "New league, new faces, new guys. I'm kind of figuring them out as we go."

Lester's next start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Pirates.

Cubs SP Jon Lester not concerned about slow start

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester is aware his track record in the first month of the season isn't very good, which is why he isn't concerned about another slow start in 2015. The left-hander is 0-2 with a 6.89 ERA through three starts and is 13-15 with a 4.04 ERA in 43 career starts in March/April.

"I think the only good April I've ever had was last year," Lester said, per MLB.com. "I'm usually not a fast starter. Usually I guess it's maybe mid-May, June where you get into that rhythm of every five days and arm strength has built up and it's started to warm up and everything falls into place."

Lester said he is healthy and on schedule after dealing with a dead-arm phase near the end of spring training.

"The biggest thing was pushing the extra start back and getting those pitches," he said. "As far as physically, it didn't alter anything."

Cubs manager Joe Maddon still believes in Jon Lester

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/15) Despite Jon Lester's rough start to his Cubs' career, manager Joe Maddon has not lost faith in the free-agent left hander, per the Chicago Tribune.

Lester suffered the loss to the Padres on Sunday, giving up three earned runs in six innings.

"He's getting better. I think he is getting a little sharper with everything," Maddon said. "He still seemed frustrated on certain pitches today ... [but] I think it was a nice step forward."

Lester (0-2, 6.89 ERA) signed a six-year, $155 million contract with the Cubs during the offseason.

Starter Jon Lester takes loss on Sunday, still winless as a Cub

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester (0-2) gave up three earned runs in six innings to fall to the Padres on Sunday.

The Padres got two of their three runs off Lester in the second inning, courtesy of a two-run homer from Will Middlebrooks.

"For the most part, I did a pretty good job of keeping the ball on the ground and that's important, it means I'm getting action on the pitches I need, getting some mishits, which was good today," Lester said.

Lester struck out four and walked two and threw 97 pitches in the loss.

"He gave us a solid chance to win today. We couldn't get the hit when we needed it," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said to MLB.com.

Lester will try for his first win as a Cub on Friday in Cincinnati.
