Player Notes
Jon Lester limited the Rockies to two runs over eight innings Wednesday in the Cubs' 3-2 victory.

Advice: Lester struck out 14 and walked just one in the dominant outing on a hot, sunny day at Wrigley Field. The left-hander has been on a roll for the last couple of months, now boasting a 3.26 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 136/32 K/BB ratio in 132 2/3 total innings. He will get the Pirates on the road next time out.

Jon Lester pitched well in Friday's no-decision against the Phillies, allowing just two runs on seven hits over his seven frames.

Advice: The veteran left-hander racked up six strikeouts on the afternoon and didn't issue a walk. He left in line to earn his sixth victory of the season, but the Cubs bullpen was unable to preserve his lead. Lester will carry a 3.32 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 122/31 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Rockies.
