Cubs 11, Marlins 1: Cub power returns

The Cubs brought out the big bats in the road trip opener. How many times have I written this? How many times have you thought this? “There’s a game that could send the Cubs on a long winning streak.” Maybe, just maybe, the Cubs’ 11-1 crushing of the Marlins Thursday night will be that game. The Cubs didn’t waste any time beginning their long-ball barrage. After a quick first inning in which Jeff Locke and Jake Arrieta both threw only seven pitches, the Cubs loaded the bases in the top of the second on two singles, a groundout advancing the runners and an intentional walk (on a...

Cubs' new-look Jake Arrieta gets ample mileage out of low energy

Jake Arrieta displayed a buzz cut, low energy and a fastball that rarely hovered over 90 mph in the early innings Thursday night. But the result was one of his best performance of the 2017. Arrieta preserved most of a taxed bullpen by throwing seven innings of one-run ball as the Cubs cruised to...

Cubs @ Marlins: Arrieta vs Locke (Game 72)

CHC (36-35): RHP Jake Arrieta (6-5, 4.64)  MIA (32-38): LHP Jeff Locke (0-2, 4.58) First pitch: 6:10pmCST Arrieta took the loss in Pittsburgh on Saturday (4.2 IP, 2 ER, 7 K, 2 BB). He beat the Marlins at Wrigley earlier this month, holding them to 2 ER over 6 innings. For their careers, they are 9-52 (.173) against him. Stanton is 2-8 with a HR. Jake has been dealing with a nasty thumb cut/blister issue since Spring Training. If the Cubs had any depth, he might have been on the DL for it by now. When Hendricks comes back, maybe they want to shut him down to let it heal.Tags: 2017 Season...
