#Cubs and Lester face Dodgers

Jon Lester gets the start Wednesday night at Wrigley Field when the Cubs play host to the Dodgers for Game 3 of this four-game series. Here’s the lineup:

Fowler CF

Heyward RF

Bryant LF

Rizzo 1B

Zobrist 2B

Russell SS

Baez 3B

Ross C

Lester P

The Cubs enter the month of June with a 6 1/2 game lead in the NL Central. It’s the first time the Cubs have begun the month with a lead in the division since 2008. The 6 1/2 game lead is currently the Cubs’ second largest ever entering June. In 1969, the Cubs had a 7 1/5 game lead.

The Cubs finished May 18-10, and the pitchers combined for a 2.81 ERA, second best in the Majors behind the Giants.

Ben Zobrist batted .406 in May. Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo are tied for second in the NL with 37 RBI apiece.

Did I mention my man, Jon Lester, hurled a complete game tonight? Am going to witness his next start at Citizens` Bank Park in the City of Brotherly Love Monday, June 6, 2016. Can he repeat this? I`m thinking y`all want that.
