Jon Lester was knocked around for eight runs over three-plus innings in Friday’s blowout loss to the Cardinals.
Lester was pulled after loading the bases to begin the fourth inning. It was his shortest outing of the season. With the Cubs scheduled to play a doubleheader on Saturday, the club ended up using three position players to pitch before the day was over. Lester walked five batters in the loss while giving up seven hits, including a pair of homers. His has been creeping up this month and now sits at 3.14 for the year. Given his peripherals, he was never a strong bet to keep his ERA below 3.00 anyway. He’ll attempt to rebound against the Diamondbacks next time out. Jul 20 - 7:11 PM
