Cubs' John Lackey: Returns to win column

Lackey (5-7) allowed just a single run on two hits and three walks over six innings while striking out four batters during Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.

This was Lackey's first win since May 16, and he posted a 6.75 ERA and 2.9 HR/9 through the five starts in between. The veteran allowed another homer Sunday, and his 2.2 HR/9 for the campaign highlights his struggles preventing the long ball. At this stage of the game, Lackey's a high-risk, modest-reward fantasy option. He projects to make his next start on the road against Miami.
