Cubs-Diamondbacks Preview

(AP) -- As Jon Lester tries to remain perfect this month for the Chicago Cubs, the Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay undefeated for this week.

The left-hander attempts to win five straight starts for the first time in almost five years and help the visiting Cubs keep the Diamondbacks from extending their longest winning streak in nearly two years Friday night.

Lester (4-2, 3.70 ERA) didn't fret while going 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA in four April starts, and he's regrouped quite nicely to go 4-0 with a 1.67 ERA in four May outings. The only time he's won more consecutive starts was a six-game streak Aug. 27-Sept. 25, 2010.
