Cubs' Jon Lester: Crushed by Nationals
Lester (12-5) took the loss against the Nationals on Thursday, allowing nine runs (eight earned) on 10 hits over 3.2 innings. He struck out five and walked one.
Lester's free fall in the second half continues, as he has allowed at least five runs in four of five starts since the All-Star break. The veteran left-hander next lines up to start at Pittsburgh on Thursday as he tries to reclaim the first-half form that resulted in a 2.58 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over his first 19 starts.
