#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:
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.
