      Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Wins NL Cy Young Award

      Arrieta was named the National League Cy Young Award winner by the Baseball Writers' Association of America on Wednesday, MLB.com reports. Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke both had a case, but Arrieta walks away with his first career Cy Young award after finishing ninth in the NL vote in 2014. The honor is well deserved for Arrieta, who led the league in wins (22) and complete games (4), and finished second in innings pitched (229), ERA (1.77) and WHIP (0.86). Arrieta was also exceptional at keeping the ball in the yard, allowing just 10 homers thanks to a 22.8 percent flyball rate (third-lowest in NL).

      Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Will start Game 2 of NLCS

      Arrieta will start Game 2 of the NLCS, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Arrieta was unusually average against the Cardinals in Game 3 of the NLDS. Arguably the front-runner for the Cy Young award, the 29-year-old uncharacteristically gave up four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine batters in 5.2 innings. Still, Arrieta was able to pick up the win as the Cubs were able to hit six home runs in the contest. While it's unlikely he will get that type of run support again with either the Mets or Dodgers set to play Chicago in the NLDS, his incredible hot streak on the mound should make him a must play most nights.

      Chicago Cubs' Jake Arrieta Shuts out Bucs in Wild Card game

      Arrieta tossed a complete game shutout in the Wild Card game win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. The Cubs plated a run against Gerrit Cole in the top of the first inning, and that turned out to be all of the support that Arrieta needed Wednesday. He finished the game with 11 strikeouts and did not walk a batter, while scattering four hits in the outing and benefitting from the handful of Bucs' hard-hit balls finding the defenders behind him.

      Cubs ace Jake Arrieta tosses six scoreless innings in win

      Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta pitched six scoreless innings in his last regular-season start of the year, improving to 22-6. Arrieta has done everything he can to close the gap with Zack Greinke in the Cy Young race, as he has struck out 27 in his last three starts - all scoreless - and has only given up six hits and one walk in that span. It's safe to say that he'll be on the mound for the Cubs in the Wild Card game next week.

      Cubs SP Jake Arrieta continues push for NL Cy Young award

      Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta (21-6) was marvelous Sunday, giving up one hit through seven innings and striking out seven batters in a 4-0 victory over the Pirates. Lost in the brilliant performance, Arrieta also hit his second home run of the season, a second-inning solo shot off starter A.J. Burnett to kickstart the Cubs' offense. He's now sporting a 0.80 ERA in the second half of the season. The 29-year-old is arguably one of the favorites to win the NL Cy Young award with his blistering end to the season.

      Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta earns 20th win of season Tuesday

      Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta picked up his 20th win in superb fashion Tuesday against the Brewers, allowing just three hits and one walk over nine shutout innings while striking out 11. Wins obviously don't always tell the whole story, but in Arrieta's case, it is fitting that he was the first pitcher to 20 wins this season. He has a 0.86 ERA in the second half, which would be a major league record if it holds. The competition is stiff in the National League, but Arrieta's recent run has put him firmly in the mix for the Cy Young award. Arrieta will start again Sunday against the Pirates, after which he will likely be lined up to start for the Cubs in the wild card game.

      Cubs SP Jake Arrieta receives no-decision Wednesday

      Cubs SP Jake Arrieta pitched well again on Wednesday, as he allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out six in a no-decision against the Pirates. Arrieta continues his fantastic run, as he extended his quality start streak to an incredible 16 games. The right-hander can attribute his success to strikeouts and groundballs, as his 54 percent groundball percentage and 27 percent strikeout rate are some of the best in baseball. The outing lowered his ERA to a minuscule 1.96 and he, Zack Greinke, and Clayton Kershaw are all putting in strong cases for the NL Cy Young this year. He'll look to add to his resume against the Brewers next Tuesday.

      Cubs SP Jake Arrieta gets to 200 Ks with strong outing Friday

      Cubs starter Jake Arrieta continued his march towards a potential Cy Young award, as he dominated the Phillies in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader. Arrieta allowed one run on six hits over eight strong innings. He walked two and struck out seven, eclipsing the 200-strikeout mark for the first time in his career. Arrieta (19-6, 1.99 ERA) gave up a solo home run to Aaron Altherr in the second inning for the only damage done against him. Meanwhile, the Cubs strung together a pair of two-run innings, and went on to win 5-1. Arrieta has been unworldly on the mound lately. He hasn't allowed an earned run in his last five starts, spanning 37 innings. He also owns a 41:5 K:BB ratio over that same stretch.
