Cubs' Jon Lester: Misses 10th win by one out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (9-3) dished 7.2 innings, allowing one run, three hits and a walk while striking out four in Tuesday's no-decision against the Reds.

Lester was dominant on Tuesday, lowering his ERA for the month of June down to 1.41 over 44.2 innings (six starts). Unfortunately, his performance went by the wayside as Hector Rondon blew the save, giving up the tying run with two outs in the ninth. His name sometimes gets overshadowed by his own teammate Jake Arrieta - and some guy named Kershaw - but, the 32-year-old Lester has been dominant this season and is just about as good as them come. He'll be on the road Sunday for his next start, looking for his elusive 10th win, against the Mets.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Unrewarded for quality outing against Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester tossed seven strong innings Thursday against Miami, giving up just two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out seven in a no-decision.

Unfortunately, Wei-Yin Chen matched him inning for inning on the other side, then reliever Pedro Strop coughed up the winning runs. All the Marlins could get off Lester was a pair of solo homers -- a bit of a surprise in their pitcher-friendly park against a guy who doesn't give up many long balls. With six consecutive quality starts and an ERA hovering just over 2.00, Lester remains one of the finest fantasy starters around, though he's still likely going to see a bit of regression thanks to his fortunate .264 BABIP and 87.4 percent strand rate.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Wins fifth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (9-3) tossed six innings, allowing three runs, seven hits and three walks while striking out seven in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

Despite it being his worst showing in nearly a month, Lester picked up his fifth straight quality-start win. He issued a free pass for the first time in four starts while walking a season-high three batters for the second time this season. Most pitchers would take this start and be happy, but for Lester, this was a sub-par performance in what has been a great season so far. The lefty will be on the bump next in Miami on Thursday.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Picks up eighth win Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (8-3) was strong again Sunday, allowing just an unearned run on five hits over seven innings while striking out seven in a 13-2 rout of the Braves.

He's now won four straight decisions, posting a 0.59 ERA and 33:2 K:BB in 30.1 innings over that stretch, bringing Lester's ERA on the season back down to 1.89. He'll look to continue his remarkable run at home Saturday against the Pirates.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Fires eight shutout innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lester (7-3) shut out the Phillies for eight innings Monday, allowing four hits and striking out nine without walking a batter.

Lester has been remarkable over his last two games, allowing one run in 17 innings, striking out 19 without surrendering a single walk. The lefty now owns a sterling 2.06 ERA and 0.97 WHIP for the season. His next start comes Sunday against the Braves.
