Watch: Jon Lester gives up hit in 7th

The Cardinals got their first hit from All-Star Jhonny Peralta's solid one-hopper to fellow All-Star Kris Bryant, who couldn't handle it. It's 0-0 in the 7th, but the Cardinals are threatening. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Jayson Stark @jaysonst

Ned Yost only had option to add 2 position players, plus Teixeira as replacement for Miggy. Took Martin as 3rd C & Holt as only #Redsox rep

Check out Lester's first MLB hit -- a solid, infield single. He was 0-for-71 in the regular season and postseason combined. The Cubs and Cards are scoreless in the 4th.


Jesse Rogers @ESPNChiCubs

If you missed it, Lester did one of those 'looks up into the sky pointing things' acting like he's been there before.
