Jon Lester allows one run Thursday versus St Louis

Jon Lester went six innings and allowed only a single run, which was unearned. He earned the victory while striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Lester holds the possibility of being amazing. He has had recent seasons with ERAs in the 2's. He went 19-5 in 2016. He has struck out at least 180 in each of the last four seasons. However, he also had a 4.33 ERA last season with the worst strikeout total of those four seasons with 180. He is trustworthy to be a solid starter in most leagues at the very least as long as he stays healthy.

Jon Lester allows five runs Wednesday versus Pittsburgh

Jon Lester went five innings allowing four runs. The Cubs would explode offensively after he left the game so he was left with a no-decision.

Jon Lester with a fun outing Thursday versus Milwaukee

Jon Lester went six scoreless innings with six strikeouts. However, I believe that the turning point in the game came from Ryan Braun. He stole second in the first inning and then tried to steal third before Lester even threw a pitch. Lester threw him out and suddenly everyone including Braun was laughing and having fun. The next half-inning the Cubs would return the free-wheeling style on the basepaths to score three runs.

Jon Lester with a great outing Thursday versus Milwaukee

Jon Lester went six innings without giving a run with only four baserunners. He even threw out a baserunner in the first inning. It is my belief that the fun of the moment and sudden grins on everyone's face helped give the Cubs a boost that lead to the victory. He would strike out six and move to 1-0 on the season.
