Cubs SP Jon Lester struggles in loss on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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

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.
