Player Notes
Jon Lester fell one out shy of a shutout Monday, allowing one run over 8 2/3 frames but settling for a no-decision in a 2-1 win over the Indians.

Advice: Gunning for the first shutout by a Cubs lefty since 2006, Lester hit Abraham Almonte with a pitch to lead off the ninth inning and Francisco Lindor reached on an infield single with one out. He struck out Michael Brantley but then allowed a run-scoring single to Carlos Santana. Lester was then pulled, and Hector Rondon wound up picking up the victory after retiring one batter when Kris Bryant hit a walk-off homer in the ninth. The southpaw surrendered six hits, walked one and struck out six on the day, lowering his ERA to 3.44. He gets the Dodgers this weekend.

Jon Lester was lit up for seven runs and three homers in 2 1/3 innings by the Tigers on Wednesday.

Advice: Lester's four-game winning streak was snapped. It was both his shortest outing of the season and his most runs allowed as a Cub. He was supposed to get away from the Tigers now that he's in the NL, but he's faced them twice this season and gotten rocked both times. Just two of his 11 career regular-season starts against the Tigers were quality starts.
