|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta allowed just one run over seven innings of work in Chicago's 5-2 win over the Pirates Monday.
Arrieta only saw issues in the first inning when he allowed an RBI single to Andrew McCutchen, driving in Gregory Polanco. He settled in after that, recording seven strikeouts over his final six innings of work.
Arrieta, now 2-1 on the year, boasts a 1.74 ERA in 20 2/3 innings this season. He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Reds.

Cubs' Arrieta tosses seven scoreless innings in win vs. Cardinals
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta allowed just three hits and three walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out seven in his team's 2-0 win over the Cardinals Wednesday.
Arrieta conquered a rough first inning and seemed to respond to a pep talk from catcher Miguel Montero, MLB.com reports.
"I know he’s a guy who you can go a little bit hard on him and he can take it and he’ll get better," Montero said. "Some guys you have to go softer because you don’t want to hurt his feelings. I went to the mound, I know he can take it and I let him know what I think. It did help, because he agreed with what I said."
Arrieta continued his career dominance of the Cardinals, as he entered Wednesday's game with an 0.92 ERA in five career starts against the team. He was initially slated to pitch Tuesday, but inclement weather pushed his schedule back one day and caused the team to juggle its rotation for the rest of the week. Arrieta will square off against the Reds in Chicago Tuesday.

Arrieta, Castro lead Cubs over Cardinals 2-0
CHICAGO (AP) Cubs catcher Miguel Montero called Jake Arrieta a freak. Chicago manager Joe Maddon said Arrieta is in such good shape he could record fitness videos, like Jane Fonda used to.
Arrieta, Castro lead Cubs over Cardinals 2-0
CHICAGO (AP) Jake Arrieta allowed three hits over seven innings and Starlin Castro had a go-ahead RBI single in a two-run seventh inning, leading the Chicago Cubs over the St. Louis Cardinals 2-0 Wednesday for their first win this season.
|2014 summary: Jake Arrieta's season started a month late as he recovered from a shoulder injury, which inconvenienced the small circle of NL-only owners who drafted him. Mixed league owners had little idea how much demand they would generate for Arrieta's services, but by midseason he would be owned in more than 90 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com. Arrieta's addition of a slider/cutter enabled him to dramatically increase his strikeout and ground ball rates, and he completed his breakout season with a 10-5 record, 2.53 ERA and 0.99 WHIP.|
Playing time status: Arrieta will occupy a spot at or near the top of the Cubs' rotation and, barring injury, should provide at least 190 innings.
2015 outlook: For the last four months of the 2014 season, Arrieta was among the most dominant starters in Fantasy, and he allowed two runs or fewer in 15 of his final 19 starts. He may not maintain quite that level of consistency, but Arrieta won't need to in order to be a top 20 starting pitcher in 2015. He now possesses the ability to get strikeouts, pitch with control and induce grounders to place him among that exclusive group.
