#Cubs Arrieta vs Brewers at Wrigley
Weather permitting, Jake Arrieta will get the start Thursday in the Cubs’ series finale against the Brewers. Here’s the lineup:
La Stella 3B
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 from September 1967 to July 1968.
Arrieta hasn’t allowed a run in 48 2/3 consecutive regular season innings at Wrigley Field, the longest streak in the ballpark’s history and the longest for any pitcher at his home park since the Phillies’ Ray Herbert threw 54 straight scoreless innings at Connie Mack Stadium spanning 1962-63.
