#Cubs and Lester go for series win
Jon Lester makes the start Sunday at Miller Park in the Cubs’ series finale against the Brewers. A win on Sunday would give the Cubs three-straight series wins to begin a “second half” of a season for the first time in 80 years (1936).
This will be Lester’s first career start at Miller Park. The only active ML park he hasn’t pitched in is PETCO Park in San Diego.
Here’s the lineup:
La Stella 2B
The Cubs have a 2.28 ERA in eight games since the break, best mark in the NL, and second best in MLB to the Yankees.
Dexter Fowler is not in the lineup. He played two straight games coming off the DL, and manager Joe Maddon has said he wants to be careful with the outfielder so he doesn’t aggravate his hamstring.
