Jon Lester couldn't make it through five innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday night.
Lester struggled with his command throughout the night, issuing five free passes while punching out two. He allowed one run on three hits over his 4 2/3 innings of work, throwing 103 pitches and departing with a pair of men on in the fifth. Justin Turner's RBI single in the fifth provided the damage against him. Lester would presumably start again in Game 6 should the series last that long. Oct 15 - 11:06 PM
