Jon Lester picks up seventh win Monday

by Elliott Baas | Cubs Correspondent | Tue, Jun 25th 12:37pm EDT

Jon Lester allowed two runs (zero earned) on five hits over six innings in the Cubs' 8-3 win over the Braves on Monday. He walked none and struck out seven while improving to 7-5.

Fantasy Impact:

Lester is beginning to recover from his rough stretch, and lucky for him a pair of errors wiped the runs scored from his ERA. He now has a 3.83 mark on the year along with a 4.21 FIP and 4.56 K/BB ratio. He's trustable in most matchups, and only needs to be sat against the best lineups in hitter-friendly ballparks. His next start comes Sunday in Cincinnati.
