Jon Lester allowed one run over six innings Tuesday in the Cubs' NL Wild Card Game loss to the Rockies.
Lester was shaky in the top of the first, issuing a walk to leadoff man Charlie Blackmon and surrendering a ground-rule double to DJ LeMahieu before giving up a run-scoring sacrifice fly to Nolan Arenado. The veteran left-hander settled in from there, ultimately yielding just four total hits while striking out nine, but the Cubs' offense struggled to get anything going and Chicago eventually fell 2-1 in 13 innings. Lester, 34, finished the regular season with a sharp 3.32 ERA in 32 starts. He's under contract for $27.5 million in 2019. Oct 3 - 1:22 AM
