Terrible sixth inning dooms Cubs SP Jon Lester to defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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' Jon Lester pitches team to seventh straight victory Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.
