When Lester’s Not Lester
Jon Lester gave up 5 runs in 5+ innings. That’s not the real Jon Lester.
Clint Hurdle, the Pirates Mgr. made a couple of changes to his lineup, and took advantage of the pretend Lester who doesn’t do what he did except as the pretend Lester.
The Cubs come back often when, they have to, and they did in the 8th, yesterday as the Cubs began making up the deficit with an Anthony Rizzo HR.
The ‘real’ Lester will be back much to the chagrin of Clint Hurdle, and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Cubs return to Pittsburgh in June, and the Pirates back at Wrigley Field in July.
Your arrival at home plate brings you more on the Cubs.
