Chalk it up to a rough afternoon after a busy weekend, the Cubs made a couple errors, and struggled at the plate throughout the loss today. Jon Lester struggled with his command on both sides of the plate today, and made too many mistakes in the middle of the zone. The result was a tough outing for Lester as he gave up six earned runs in just 3.1 innings of work. The Cubs as a team were 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position, at least they had twelve chances, right? Jorge Soler was 1-for-2 with a walk, and Kris Bryant was clearly fatigued as he could only manage a loud double off the wall in three at bats.
