Cubs' Jon Lester has worst outing ever Sunday vs. Pirates

Cubs' Jon Lester has worst outing ever Sunday vs. Pirates”

It was the first time that Lester has ever been chased from a game that quickly, but fortunately for Cubs fans, some history with giving up big first inning outbursts will make you feel better.

The onslaught of runs started with a Josh Bell one-out single that scored Josh Harrison.

A Kris Bryant error on Freese's grounder to third loaded the bases.

Lester yielded 10 runs-four earned-on six hits with three walks and no strikeouts in 2/3 of an inning. Things would somehow get worse.

It was only at this point, after Lester had surrendered 10 runs in two-thirds of an inning, on 53 pitches, that Cubs manager Joe Madden made the decision to yank the poor man.

With score 5-0 and Lester 50 pitches deep, he served up a grand slam to Francisco Cervelli.
