#Cubs lineup vs Brewers
What will Jake Arrieta do for an encore? On Wednesday night against the Brewers, the right-hander makes his first start since throwing his second no-hitter. Arrieta is 20-1 with an 0.86 ERA over his last 24 regular season starts. His only loss in that span came when Cole Hamels threw his no-hitter against the Cubs on July 25.
Arrieta has a streak of 24 quality starts in a row, second longest streak since Bob Gibson established the MLB record when he threw 26 straight quality starts from September 1967 to July 1968. In his start after his first no-no last Aug. 30, Arrieta threw eight scoreless innings against the D-backs on Sept. 5.
Miguel Montero is not starting. He was scratched from Tuesday’s game with a stiff back. Here’s the lineup:
