Jon Lester Is Not Happy About The Nacho Man

Jon Lester Is Not Happy About The Nacho Man

Russell later returned with a new plate of nachos for the fan, who shook hands with Russell and took a picture with him.

Russell emerged from the dugout a few innings later with a plate of nachos and delivered it to the fan.

He struck out four, walked two and gave up just five hits - the only run he allowed on the Gyorko shot. Lester is 4-4 with a 2.36 ERA in 13 career starts against the Cardinals, including a 1-1 mark and 3.28 ERA in four meetings this season. Chicago can wrap up the division with a win Tuesday against the Cardinals or a loss by Milwaukee against Cincinnati. Chicago is on the verge of eliminating the Cardinals from NL Central contention with just a couple games to go. Colorado entered Monday leading Milwaukee by two games and St. Louis by 2 1/2. Javier Baez also added a three-run homer, his 23rd of the year.

As for St. Louis, they will be battling to keep their flickering playoff hopes alive. Bryant was 3 for 4 with a home run last night and also scored a pair of runs. With 10 runs on the board for the victors, you might think the lead highlight would be, oh, one of the two home runs Chicago hit on the night.

"The last one especially was not typical Jon Lester", manager Joe Maddon said before the game on his eagerness to see how Lester responded Monday.

Baez hit his first home run since September 13 with two outs, driving in Zobrist and Heyward in the third, giving Chicago an 8-1 advantage.

"He got into some tough counts and had to hit more of the plate", St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said of Weaver. It probably helped that his team went on to win the game at the Busch Stadium in St Louis. Martinez jammed his thumb during the team's last series against the Cubs and did not appear in either of St. Louis' games over the weekend. Jake Arrieta takes the mound for Chicago.

BRAVES 9-2, METS 2-3 Seth Lugo pitched two-hit ball over six innings, and Travis d'Arnaud hit a record-setting home run for host NY in a doubleheader split with Atlanta. He's 12-and-11 with a 3.63 ERA this season.
