Jake Arrieta flirts with no-hitter, pitches first career shutout

On a meaningless, mid-September date on the Cubs’ schedule that looked like just another day for far-off promises and Wrigley Field sideshows, Jake Arrieta had a message for anyone tuning in. Never mind when that prized draft pick taking batting practice Tuesday in front of the front-office big shots – Kyle Schwarber – might get to the big-leagues. Forget the sideshow of the day that was Charles Barkley hanging with the owner before the game. As far as Arrieta...

Arrieta nears a no-no again

CHICAGO – With self-confidence you don’t see often in the frustrating game of baseball, Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta has risen to the top of the team’s pitching staff.

Jake Arrieta pitches Cubs to 4-1 victory vs. Orioles

Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta hasn’t forgotten his time with the Baltimore Orioles. Instead of simply moving on from that part of his career, he still draws on the positive and negative experiences he had in Baltimore. It was clear during the Cubs’ 4-1 victory Friday against the Orioles that those years haven’t been wasted. ‘‘You think about it all the time,’’ Arrieta said. ‘‘That’s just part of my development. Those years still are very...

Strop got in and then out of trouble to help preserve the victory for the other former Oriole, Arrieta.

Arrieta goes from O's castoff to Cubs ace

CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs starter Jake Arrieta didn't necessarily circle his calendar when the schedule came out, but it's safe to say he's pretty excited to face his former team, the Baltimore Orioles, on Friday for the first time since being traded to Chicago last season. "I've thought about it quite a bit," Arrieta said earlier this week. "I'm approaching it the same way as other games." There's a quiet confidence to Arrieta these days that wasn't around when he was traded to the Cubs in July 2013 along with pitcher Pedro Strop for starter Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger.
