#Cubs Arrieta goes for 22nd win
Jake Arrieta goes for his 22nd win Friday night when the Cubs open their final regular season series at Miller Park against the Brewers. Arrieta has thrown 19 consecutive quality starts, and he’s 15-1 with a 0.89 ERA in that stretch. He has a 0.80 ERA since the All-Star break, which would be the lowest in Major League history. Manager Joe Maddon said not to expect Arrieta throwing 100 plus pitches in his final regular season start. The right-hander will be on the mound Wednesday when the Cubs play the Pirates in the NL Wild Card game. The site for that game is still to be determined. A Pirates’ win on Friday and Cubs’ loss would clinch home field advantage for the Bucs.
Here’s the lineup:
