    A day after Jon Lester showed the league why he’s still one of the game’s top pitchers, the Chicago Cubs are honoring the hurler with a themed-road trip out west.

    The Cubs, who finished off a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night, will now head to Colorado and Los Angeles for a seven-game road trip, and as they depart, they will do their best impressions of Lester’s outdoor-loving style:

    Lester gave up four first inning runs to the Cardinals on Saturday, but he battled back and held the team scoreless for his final five innings of work as he earned the victory and helped his team to a victory.

    Lester is set to pitch in the series opener of a four-game set against the Los Angeles Dodgers beginning on Thursday night.
