Cubs' magic number 1 following win over Cardinals

(TSX / STATS) -- ST. LOUIS -- The numbers don't lie. This has been the worst of Jon Lester's three years with the Chicago Cubs.

However, the veteran left-hander pitched his team to the brink of a second straight National League Central title on Monday night, with plenty of help from the offense.

Lester fired six solid innings as Chicago routed the St. Louis Cardinals 10-2 in Busch Stadium, reducing its magic number for the division championship to one.
