Lester pitches 2 scoreless innings in spring debut with Cubs

MESA, Ariz. (AP) For Jon Lester, it was just the beginning of the road to opening day. Nothing more, nothing less.

Lester pitched two scoreless innings Friday in his spring debut with the Chicago Cubs, who lost 5-2 to the Cincinnati Reds.

The veteran left-hander got Billy Hamilton to fly out to right leading off the game, and then struck out Brandon Phillips, Todd Frazier and Jay Bruce - all swinging. He broke Chris Dominguez's bat on a one-out single in the second, and Kristopher Negron followed with a double-play grounder.
