Jon Lester returns to Wrigley as Nationals face Cubs

After spending the past six seasons with the Chicago Cubs, Washington Nationals left-hander Jon Lester is eager to return to Wrigley Field on Monday as the opposing starting pitcher.

Facing his former teammates looms as a unique challenge. But Lester intends to build valuable momentum by handling a basic task once he arrives at the ballpark.

"The biggest thing for me is making sure I walk into the right dugout," Lester said.
