RotoWire News: Lester turned in a quality start, allowing three runs on five hits, walking one and striking out 10 over six innings of a Cubs win against the Reds in 11 innings on Friday night. "I got a better feel for my cutter tonight and was able to make some offspeed pitches, which is obviously key against this team," Lester said. "I'm learning. New league, new faces, new guys."
