Jon Lester has done a great deal to improve his reputation as a hitter in recent years. That being said, he's still Jon Lester, so when he squares around to bunt, the opponent is justified in, well, preparing for a bunt. The Cubs veteran starter faked out the Braves this time around, however, instead ripping a single into the outfield.


There's not much the Braves infield can do their except tip their caps to him.


Lester's one of the worst hitters in MLB history, even for a pitcher. Entering Monday, he owned a .098 career batting average. He has improved since joining the Cubs, though, and he sports a .569 OPS in 2019. It seems that late in his career, he's finally found his stroke!
