Cubs LHP Jon Lester struggles at holding runners at first base, though he's reduced the number of stolen bases against him from 44 in 2015 to 13 this season. The Diamondbacks oppose him Saturday, and they're fifth in the majors with 77 stolen bases. Also, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo knows all about Lester's difficulties in making pickoff throws, having worked with him as the bench coach while the two were with the Red Sox. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said the answer to slowing Arizona's running game is simple: "Don't let them on first base." Maddon added, "I don't like pitchers to lose focus to the plate (worrying about who's on base). You've got to keep the right guys -- or the wrong guys -- off first base to control it."
