Lester ready to step up as Cubs face Reds

Jon Lester relied on his teammates for a lift during his most recent start for the Chicago Cubs.

As the left-hander prepares to face the visiting Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night with the Cubs in the hunt for a playoff spot, Lester is hoping to be a catalyst himself.

Lester (13-10, 4.59 ERA) earned one of the wilder victories in his career on Friday. After yielding four first-inning runs to the Pittsburgh Pirates, he watched in appreciation as his teammates rallied for five runs in the bottom half, including home runs from Nicholas Castellanos, Willson Contreras and Nico Hoerner.
