Ball gets stuck in Jon Lester's glove so he throws his glove to first base for an out

Jon Lester has had trouble this year with making throws to first base, but he found a cure for those yips today.

Just throw the whole glove to first base.

Shades of Terry Mulholland as the ball got stuck in the webbing of Lester's glove and he couldn't get it out, so he just lobbed the whole thing to Anthony Rizzo.

Unfortunately for the Cubs, the rest of the game didn't go as well as this play as they fell to the Padres 5-2.
