“Riz told me I was gonna pitch a no hitter today,” said Jon Lester who threw a complete game 3 hitter as the Cubs blanked the Giants 2-0.

He was swerving through 7 innings until Hunter Pence came and interrupted the no hit party with a solo hr. Other than that, he was basically flawless as the Cubs move their record to 87-47.

Lester has been on a tear the last month as the Cy Young talks creep up. “I’m not worried about winning a Cy Young Award. I’d much rather have a ring.” Lester along with cohorts Jake Arietta and Kyle Hendricks are all viable candidates for the award and I’m sure they’d agree with Lesster on his “ring over Cy Young” sentiments.
