Jon Lester yielded three hits and two runs over eight sparkling frames Saturday in a victory against the Cardinals.
Lester racked up 10 strikeouts and didn’t allow a free pass. The left-hander was brilliant on Saturday, going toe-to-toe with Adam Wainwright in an epic pitcher’s duel at Wrigley Field. Lester retired the first 17 hitters he faced before Wainwright broke up his perfect game with a two-out single in the sixth inning. Despite his dominance, Lester ended the afternoon on a sour note by allowing back-to-back home runs to Paul DeJong and Randal Grichuk in the eighth inning. Lester has been picture-perfect since his meltdown against the Pirates on July 9 (10 runs in 2/3 of an inning), compiling a stunning 1.80 ERA over his last two outings. He’ll take a 7-6 record into his next start Thursday against the White Sox. Jul 22 - 7:57 PM
