#Cubs and Arrieta face Pirates

Jake Arrieta takes the mound Friday for the Cubs, who open a three-game series against the Pirates at Wrigley Field. Here’s the lineup:

Fowler CF

Szczur LF

Zobrist 2Band A

Rizzo 1B

Almora Jr RF

Baez 3B

Russell SS

Montero C

Arrieta P

Arrieta is 26-2 with a 1.23 ERA (32 ER/234 IP) with 55 walks and 237 strikeouts in his last 33 starts since June 21 of last year.


I hope everyone will excuse me for smiling. Szczur hit his homer before I could get to my truck. I heard the aftermath of the call.

Aloha Mat B! No apologies necessary! Szczur is hungry to play! Enjoy the game! Mahalo!

I really liked the shot of the umpire shaking Contreras’s hand and the Pirate hitter patting him on the back when he entered the game in the ninth.
