What a drag of a game that was, eh? After an off-day? Thoroughly ugh all around.
Not unlike his early April starts or his clunker in Miami, Jon Lester simply got hit tonight. Firmly and repeatedly, and he was out of the game with just one out in the fifth. Edwin Jackson took over and – believe it or not – pitched fairly well, so at least there’s that.
Offensively, the Cubs had some opportunities, but Rajai Davis stole a David Ross homer and otherwise the Cubs came up empty.
Ugh all around.
