17 57 71 | Jon Lester, born January 7, pitches 17 outs, Game 1 of World Series, 2016


It has been 71-years since the Cubs were in the World Series.  Lester's birthday can be written 7/1 or 1/7, much like '71' and '17' respectively.

Notice in Game 1, on 10/25/2016, he recorded 17 outs.

5.2 IP = (5x3)+2 = 17

10/25/2016 = 10+25+20+16 = 71


Notice that he threw 57-strikes.

World Series = 57


Notice that Kluber also had 57-strikes at the same point in the game.

World Series = 57
