Jon Lester tries to sire adult relievers who squandered his excellent effort

Jon Lester wasn’t in a mood to pat himself on a behind Saturday night, even after adding to a list of clever outings from Cubs‘ starting pitchers.

“I felt good,” Lester said. “In a end, we mislaid a game, so it doesn’t matter how we felt.”

Lester’s 6 innings of two-hit round was squandered when relievers Carl Edwards Jr. and Mike Montgomery imploded in a eighth inning. They authorised 5 runs on dual homers that resulted in a 6-3 detriment that evened this best-of-five National League Division Series during one diversion apiece.

In Lester’s final 17 innings in 3 outings dating behind to Sept. 25, he has authorised usually dual warranted runs on 11 hits. Lester threw usually 86 pitches Saturday, that creates him an appealing choice if this array goes to a fifth and determining diversion Thursday during Nationals Park.
