Lester Makes Pittance of Pirates
The Lester – Contreras combo gave nothing. I mean literally nothing in the run column to the Pirates through 7. The Pirates weren’t too generous, either. After all, they gave just a run to the Cubs in the 7th.
Lester comes out in a 1-zip game. Six outs to go, and the Cubs get a 1-0 victory to capture 1 of 3 from Pittsburgh this time around.
Subs on the mound for the Cubs allowed 6 in the last 2 innings of the game. 6 runs!
The Cubs couldn’t get any more from the Pirates, suffered a 6-1 loss, and swept at home.
More details available from the Cubs.
Milwaukee pays a visit to Wrigley beginning tonight at 705pm – CT.
