He hasnt lost since July 3.You get five runs after the bottom of the first, it kind of relaxes you, you dont have to grind as much, Lester said.Lester and the rest of the Cubs starting pitchers have been magnificent, going 11-0 in August, with Chicagos only two losses being hung on relievers. But Lester credited the offense for the starters success.It makes our lives as pitchers a lot easier when theyre consistent, and doing what theyve been doing pretty much the whole year for us, Lester said.

Counsell said Anderson might be well enough to start in the Brewers three-game series in Seattle.Cubs: OF Chris Coghlan was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday with a right rib contusion. ... RHP Joe Smith was placed on the 15-day DL with a left hamstring strain.

They collected a walk and four hits, including back-to-back infield hits to shortstop Jonathan Villar by Adam Duvall and Brandon Phillips that loaded the bases, setting up Scott Scheblers two-run single. Tyler Holt followed with an RBI single.It was a little frustrating, Peralta said. I made the pitches I wanted to make. I got ground balls. They just found some holes.
