Analysis: Lester has three frustrating no-decisions to show for a three-start stretch in which he's yielded a mere two runs across 18 innings, with the Cubs mustering only three runs during his time on the mound. The wins still should come for the Chicago ace, who next takes on the Reds in Cincinnati on Saturday.

Analysis: Lester should provide more of the same after going 19-5 with a 2.44 ERA last season.
