#Cubs and Arrieta face Cards
Jake Arrieta gets the start Friday when the Cubs play Game 2 of their four-game series against the Cardinals. First pitch is 1:20 p.m. CT from Wrigley Field. Here’s the lineup:
The Cubs have opened August with a 9-0 record, the best start to a calendar month since they were 9-0 in August 1909. The only month with a better start was June 1885 (18-0).
Anthony Rizzo, who drew the walk-off walk on Thursday in the win, has recorded the game-winning RBI in each of the team’s last two contests, and he now leads the Majors with 16 game-winning RBI this season (the Nationals’ Daniel Murphy is second with 15).
