Jon Lester surrendered two runs -- both on a singular wild pitch -- in three innings of relief during Wednesday's win over the Indians in Game 7 of the World Series.
Lester came on for Kyle Hendricks after the latter walked Carlos Santana with two outs in the fifth inning. Jason Kipnis proceeded to burn the ace southpaw for an infield single, and that damage was compounded on David Ross' sailed throw which allowed the runners to advance to second and third. Lester then bounced a curveball which smacked off Ross' mask and hopped in the opposite direction. Both Santana and an ultra-aggressive Kipnis scored on the play. Credit to Lester, though, as he locked in after the rocky start to pitch scoreless ball into the eighth inning. Aroldis Chapman surrendered an RBI double to score an inherited runner on Lester's line with two outs in that frame before the Cubs finally closed things out in the 10th. Lester gets some much-deserved rest now -- well, after he's done celebrating. Nov 3 - 12:58 AM
