Lackey (7-5) allowed one run on five hits over 6.2 innings in a no-decision in Pittsburgh on Saturday, while striking out five and walking two.

Lackey left the game with a 3-1 lead, but the Pirates ended up tying the game in the eighth inning. The 36-year-old's 7-5 record at the All-Star break is exactly halfway to his 14-10 record from a year ago, but his 2015 ERA is almost full run lower (2.99 to 3.82). Lackey has churned out six straight quality starts since getting roughed up in Colorado on June 8, and he seems primed to carry his current hot streak into the second half.

Lackey tossed a gem Monday, shutting out the Cubs for seven innings to earn the win.

Since a disastrous outing in Colorado in early June, Lackey hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start. The veteran now owns a 3.09 ERA this season after struggling through 10 starts in St. Louis a year ago. Lackey's next start will come this weekend against the Pirates.

Lackey (6-5) allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six Wednesday against the White Sox.

Including Wednesday's seven inning effort, Lackey has worked seven or more innings for the sixth time in seven starts. The 36-year-old has had four straight quality starts and he'll look to make it five in a row in his next start when he faces off against the other Chicago team -- the Cubs -- on Monday.

Lackey struck out five and walked three while holding the Cubs to two runs on eight hits over seven innings in a no-decision Friday night.

The Cards scratched out a run against the Cubs in the eighth inning and enabled Lackey to spit the hook in the process. Although his strikeout rate has dipped this season (17.4% K%, 6.6 K/9), Lackey has found a way to remain effective as an innings eater for the St. Louis rotation. He'll face the Padres at home in his next start Thursday.
