Cubs' John Lackey: Stifles Braves in Friday's win

Lackey (11-10) picked up the win against the Braves on Friday, allowing three hits over seven scoreless innings while striking out five.

It was the veteran's longest outing since June 2, and the first time he hasn't walked a batter since July 5. Lackey's 4.74 ERA is still a huge step back from last year's performance, but he'll continue filling out the back of the Cubs rotation down the stretch, with his next start coming Thursday in Pittsburgh.
