by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Arrieta struck out 12 batters, and his only base runners came on an error and a single walk. Other than that, he was as close to perfect as they come.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) Jake Arrieta (8-5) was magnificent in his start against the Mets on Thursday. The Cubs' right-hander fired eight strong innings, allowing just one run on five hits with no walks issued. He struck out seven, and really took advantage of a weak Mets offense.

The only run to score against Arrieta came on an RBI-double by Curtis Granderson in the third inning. But Arrieta was stingy aside from that, as he retired nine of the last 10 batters he faced in the 6-1 victory.

Arrieta's ERA dropped to a solid 2.80, as this now makes three consecutive starts of allowing no more than one run.

"Curveball was as good as it's been all year," Arrieta said, per MLB.com. "I was able to throw it in the middle [of the plate], but underneath the zone, at will for the most part to give the appearance of a belt-high fastball."

Arrieta (5-4) earned his first win in four starts, blanking the Nationals through five innings before they were able to scratch out a run on a sixth-inning groundout. The starter has now delivered back-to-back outings with no walks.

(5/29/2015) Cubs starter Jake Arrieta was not at his best in a start on Friday against the Royals. Arrieta did go seven innings, but allowed four runs on eight hits. He struck out five and did not walk a batter, throwing 65 of his 93 pitches for strikes in the 8-4 loss.

Three of the runs Arrieta surrendered on Friday came on solo home runs from Alcides Escobar, Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez. It was the first time since September 2013 that the right-hander gave up at least three home runs in a game.

"They came out swinging, and I expected that," Arrieta said of the Royals, per MLB.com. "It's tough when, as an opposing club, you come here, see what the wind is doing [and it makes you want to swing for the fences]."

Arrieta (4-5) still holds an impressive 3.18 ERA, and will look to get back in the win column in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Miami.


Cubs SP Jake Arrieta gives six runs in no-decision Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) By definition, Cubs starter Jake Arrieta (4-4) posted a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks. The right-hander went six innings, giving up six runs (three earned) on seven hits. He walked two and struck out seven as his ERA rose to 2.95.

A couple of miscues from the defense, coupled with a sixth-inning home run from D-Backs catcher Tuffy Gosewisch, hurt Arrieta in this one. But luckily for him, his offense was able to erase a deficit, and Arrieta picked up a no decision. He'll hope for better fortunes in his next start Friday against the Royals.

Cubs righty Jake Arrieta blasted Thursday by Cardinals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) The inconsistency that has defined the career of Cubs starter Jake Arrieta continued to plague him Thursday in St. Louis.

Arrieta has followed four strong starts to begin the year with two duds. The latest resulted in a loss in which he gave up four earned runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. He did strike out seven.

"It's just frustrating," Arrieta said, per MLB.com. "I could've given better effort. Back to back starts where I haven't been very good. I've got some work to do and clean some things up and come out next time with a little better start and set the tone better."

The right-hander allowed a run-scoring single to Jason Heyward and RBI triple to Peter Bourjos in the second inning, then an RBI double to opposing pitcher John Lackey in the fourth. He has surrendered eight runs in the last 10 1/3 innings in nearly doubling his ERA from 1.74 to 3.41.

Arrieta will seek a turnaround Tuesday against the Mets.
