Lester hitting for himself here. At 104 pitches...I like it. Was strongest in last 2 innings. Unless he's still coming out. Then I don't.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Looks like Jose Abreu might be hurt, after a weird play on a tag. He's on the ground and seemingly grabbing his side.

Heyward starting to heat up

Jason Heyward was hitting .192 just a few days ago, but after a couple good games, he's back over the Mendoza Line. He just hit his 2nd home run of the year, giving the Cardinals a 2-0 lead in Milwaukee. Follow live

Jesse Rogers @ESPNChiCubs

Lester at 92 pitches after 5 pretty stressful innings. Prob one left in him. Does have 8 K's so that's a good sign.

Brandon Moss' 3-run homer highlighted a 5-hit, 6-run top of the 5th. Cleveland chased Shane Greene and extended its lead to 9-1. Moss is 2-for-3 with 5 RBIs tonight, 1 shy of his career high. Follow live
