Jon Lester struck out eight over six scoreless innings Thursday as the Cubs shut out the Pirates 1-0.
Lester's struggles in recent weeks have been well-documented, so Thursday's dominant outing was surely cathartic for the southpaw. And it was dominant, as all five of the Pirates' hits were singles and he didn't walk a batter in the start. The win, his first in more than a month, improved him to 13-5 with a 3.72 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 25 starts on the year. An interleague matchup with the Tigers on Wednesday offers another chance for Lester to continue to right the ship. Aug 16 - 10:35 PM
