Player Notes
Jon Lester yielded two runs (one earned) in 6 1/3 innings in Friday’s 6-2 win over the Phillies.

Advice: It was a solid performance after his worst start of the year. The second run scored after Lester was pulled from the game. And after the first of two rain delays. The southpaw struck out seven and walked two to improve to 5-3 with a 2.48 ERA. He’ll get the Dodgers in his next start.

Jon Lester was not long for Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Giants, yielding five runs on six hits over 2 2/3 innings.

Advice: Last time out, Lester pitched no-hit ball into the seventh inning against the Pirates. He couldn't even make it out of the third on Saturday. The ace southpaw posted a scoreless first. The next two innings would contain runs. In the second, he surrendered a two-run double to opposite number Matt Cain. An inning later, Buster Posey whacked a two-run home run and Trevor Brown hit an RBI single to close out Lester's disappointing outing. Toss a mulligan his way, though. This was the first time all season in which he allowed more than three runs -- and he had only allowed three runs twice in eight starts entering Saturday's showdown with the Giants. Lester will carry a 2.60 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 52/15 K/BB ratio (55 1/3 innings) into a home date with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.
