Jon Lester surrendered three runs on six hits in his 5 1/3 innings of work against the Padres on Sunday.
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. Apr 19 - 5:29 PM
