Jake Arrieta turns in fantastic start Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta turned in a fantastic start Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Arrieta allowed one unearned run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out 10 and walked one during the outing. Arrieta’s only run came on an error. With runners at first and third, the Cardinals attempted to steal second. Welington Castillo made a throwing error on the play, allowing Yadier Molina to score from third. Arrieta would get the next two batters out, so the run would not have scored if not for the error. 

With the win, Arrieta improved to 10-5.

Jake Arrieta gives owners something to remember
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Just in case you were beginning to have some doubts about Jake Arrieta, noticing that he hasn't been quite as dominant in recent weeks with a 3-4 record, 3.67 ERA and 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings in 12 starts since his breakthrough June, he made sure that line of thinking wouldn't haunt you in the offseason, regardless of how his final two starts go, with his performance Tuesday night.

Not only did he record his first complete game and shutout, but he threw a one-hitter, setting a career high with 13 strikeouts. It was a start even better than any of those he had in June, and he did against the same Reds team that beat him up for six earned runs in four inning back on Aug. 28 -- one of two ugly starts that served to inflate his ERA during that 12-start stretch.

The 28-year-old right-hander has maintained his velocity throughout and, apart from a trio of three-walk games at the beginning of July, hasn't encountered any of his past control issues. And for all his strikeouts, he has one of the lowest home run rates in the majors, making him the best of both worlds as far as quality pitchers -- a groundballer who won't give up a bunch of cheap singles pitching to contact.

In other words, he checks off every box on the list.

The one exception, of course, is durability. Until he goes 200 innings, you have reason to wonder if he can. But once all the established aces go off the board, Arrieta will rank as high as any pitcher in 2015. Top 25 seems like a lock.
