Player Notes
Jon Lester racked up 10 strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Friday.

Advice: The All-Star southpaw surrendered three runs on five hits and a walk over his six frames. The damage against him came in the form of single runs in first, third and fourth innings. It was Lester's finest start as a Cub, though he still sports an uninspiring 6.23 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through his first 21 2/3 innings. He'll try again for that elusive first victory on Wednesday when he takes on the Pirates.

Jon Lester surrendered three runs on six hits in his 5 1/3 innings of work against the Padres on Sunday.

Advice: Lester's career as a Chicago Cub is off to a less than stellar start. His outing against the Padres was at least better by degrees than the six-run debacle he put up against the Reds in his last start. Versus the Padres, Lester gave up a two-run homer to Will Middlebrooks in the third inning and after working into trouble in the sixth, he was pulled with two on and one out. Will Venable subsequently finished off Lester's line with an RBI hit. Lester struck out four and walked two in the contest while lowering his ERA to 6.89. That might look ghastly, but Lester owners should take solace in the fact that for the left-hander's career, April and May have been his worst months in terms of ERA. Historically, he gets better as the weather warms. Lester will face the Reds in his next start.
