Player Notes
Jon Lester picked up his second win of the year, holding the Reds to just five hits and one run over seven innings of work on Friday night.

Advice: Lester was on cruise control all night. He got seven ground-ball outs and struck out four, with his only mistake coming on a lead-off homer to Zack Cozart. The lefty only dealt with multiple baserunners once, and that threat was quickly snuffed out with a double-play ball. He lowered his ERA to 1.98 in 27 1/3 innings. How much of that is luck, though, is up for debate, as his .217 BABIP has certainly made his performances appear more tidy than they perhaps should have been. Regardless, Lester is a must-start every week. He gets the Brewers in his next outing.
