Player Notes
Jon Lester was brilliant in Sunday night's victory over the Cardinals, racking up seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.

Advice: The veteran southpaw scattered just three hits and a walk on the masterful evening. He has been absolutely outstanding down the stretch and has built up a very strong case for the National League Cy Young Award. Now 19-4 on the season, he'll carry a 2.28 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 191/49 K/BB ration into his final regular season tune-up against the Reds in Cincinnati on Friday.

Jon Lester was brilliant again Tuesday, yielding a lone run over seven innings in a 6-1 win over the Reds.

Advice: Lester scattered six hits while striking out five and not walking a batter on the night. The win was his ninth in a row to improve him to 18-4 on the year, and the southpaw owns a sparkling 2.36 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 184/48 K/BB ratio through 30 starts. He'll continue stating his Cy Young case Monday at the Pirates.
