#Cubs lineup: Arrieta faces Giants
Jake Arrieta takes the mound Tuesday night at AT&T Park as the Cubs open a West Coast road trip with three games against the Giants. Here’s the lineup:
La Stella 2B
Arrieta will go for his MLB-leading 16th win of the season. He would be the first Cubs pitcher with 16 wins in
a season since 2008 (Ted Lilly and Ryan Dempster each won 17). Arrieta has three scoreless outings in four August starts, going 4-0, 0.66 ERA this month.
He’s thrown 12 consecutive quality starts, the longest streak by a Cubs pitcher since Greg Maddux (14 QS) in his 1992
NL Cy Young season. Arrieta is 9-1 with a 1.26 ERA and just one home run allowed during that 12-game stretch.
