The Chicago Cubs signed pitcher Jon Lester to a six-year, $155 million deal during the off-season, and Cubs fans were excited.

But, after the first inning of the team's game against the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night, Lester had given up three runs on four hits, and many people panicked on Twitter.

Luckily for Cubs fans, the team scored three runs in the bottom of the inning, and Lester got through the next three innings without giving up a run.

In Lester's first start of the season against the St. Louis Cardinals, the pitcher gave up three runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings and got the loss.
