#Cubs lineup vs Pirates: Arrieta starts
Jake Arrieta takes the mound Tuesday night for the Cubs in Game 2 of their series against the Pirates. No Jason Heyward for the second straight day. He’s dealing with a sore wrist, which first bothered him in Arizona in early April. Here’s Tuesday’s lineup:
On Monday, Arrieta was named NL Pitcher of the Month for April after going 5-0 with a 1.00 ERA. He’s the first Cubs pitcher to win each of his first five starts in a season since Greg Maddux started 5-0 in 2006.
