Jon Lester gives Cubs seven strong innings in win on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs ace Jon Lester continued his dominance on the mound Saturday against the Pirates. Lester went seven solid innings, allowing just one run on nine hits. He walked one and struck out seven as he improved his record to 4-2.

The only run Lester surrendered was a solo home run to Sean Rodriguez in the third inning. He got into a bit of a jam in the fourth when he had runners on the corners with one out. But he got back-to-back strikeouts to get out unscathed.

Lester threw 74 of his 110 pitches for strikes as he lowered his ERA to 3.70 on the season. His next start is scheduled for Friday in Arizona.

"Jonny was fabulous, and that permitted everything to work for us today because their pitcher's really good too," manager Joe Maddon said, per ESPN.com. "You have to pitch better than good pitching to win, and we had the better pitching today."

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester strikes out six in win on Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester allowed three runs on five hits in six innings of work in Chicago's 4-3 win over the Mets on Monday.

Lester cruised through the first three innings of the game without allowing a hit. Then in the fourth, Lester allowed an RBI single to Kevin Plawecki. Then in the sixth, Lester surrendered back-to-back home runs to Lucas Duda and Wilmer Flores. He managed to finish the inning without any more damage.

"I think it was a story of good, bad and indifferent all in one," Lester said. "It's something to build on, but the biggest thing is that we won."

Lester, now 3-2, pushed his ERA to 4.80 in 41 2/3 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Pirates.

"I think Jon's just fine," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "I see him getting better every time out. ... Give him a little bit more time as he builds into this thing. I like what I'm seeing."

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester earns win in Wednesday's game
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester earned his second win of the season during Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Cardinals.

"That's why you want a guy like him on your staff," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "Typically, his stuff kept getting better as the game progressed, we've seen that a lot. I thought his cutter became more pertinent later in the game. He made good pitches when he had to. He keeps making positive strides, and that's good for us."

Lester tossed seven solid of innings of work, allowing four runs (one earned) on seven hits. He also struck out six batters and walked two. He surrendered a solo home run to Johnny Peralta in the fourth inning.

It was Lester's second-consecutive appearance pitching seven innings and surrendering one earned run or less. He is now 2-2 with a 4.04 ERA on the season.

"He's just got a real good sense of his game," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said of Lester. "He knows when to expand the plate. He's got deception, he's got a good variety of pitches. He's just a good pitcher. He knows what he's doing."

He is expected to go for his third win of the season Monday against the Mets.

Cubs LHP Jon Lester finally lights-out in Friday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.
