4/19:Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester returned to form Thursday versus the Cardinals. Lester has been a mixed bag of results early on but went six innings, allowing two hits, one run (unearned), one walk and struck out seven batters. Lester needed an outing like this and owners are hoping he can keep the momentum going next Wednesday versus the Cleveland Indians.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBaller
