Jon Lester eager for Cardinals debut vs. Braves

Veteran left-hander Jon Lester will begin yet another chapter when the St. Louis Cardinals host the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday.

Lester (3-5, 5.02 ERA) will start the opener of the three-game series at Busch Stadium for the Cardinals, who acquired him in a trade with the Washington Nationals before Friday's deadline.

Lester threw seven shutout innings during an 18-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on July 19. In his last Nationals outing on July 24, he allowed two home runs and three runs in five innings in a 5-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
