CUBS 0 CARDINALS 4 F...LACKEY goes HALOS Days on "MADDON BALL" as he out duels JON LESTER in Game 1!..." A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" going REDBIRDS hold serve in the NLDS Game 1! #CHCvsSTL #NorthSiders #BaseballTownUSA #NLDS #NLCentralElite #REDBIRDSup1-0

The Chicago Cubs picked up Jon Lester and paid him the big bucks for an October Run. The St. Louis Cardinals also have a certified and verified October Arm in John Lackey dating back to his "Halos Days" dba Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and he didn't disappoint.

Lackey gives up two hits as he left in the 8th frame with one out as he completely shuts down "Maddon Ball" for a game 1 victory.  The Redbirds wasted no time with Cubbies starter Jon Lester as Matt Holliday got things started in the 1st with an RBI single.

Then in the 8th with the score 1-0 Redbirds Tommy Pham took Lester (L, 7.1 IP 5 H 3 R 3 ER BB 9 SO) deep as that ended his night. Pedro Strop with Matt Carpenter on gives up a pinch-hit two-run Blast to Stephen Piscotty for some much-needed insurance as St. Louis wins game 1 by the score of 4-0.

Chicago only had three hits as Lester gave the Cubbies some chances. That Dexter Fowler in the 6th took Lackey deep to the warning track with a man on was the Redbirds only real score ending the Cubbies half of the 6th.

Game #2 is on Saturday with Kyle Hendricks vs Carlos Garcia at 5:30pm ET...
