Cubs RF Jorge Soler goes yard in loss on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler made his only hit of Friday's game count. Soler went deep with a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning, but it was not enough as the Cubs fell to the Royals 8-4.

Soler's home run was his fourth of the season and just his first since May 8. He had been hitless in his previous three games and now sports a .276 batting average on the season.

Cubs SP Jake Arrieta goes seven innings in loss on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs starter Jake Arrieta was not at his best in a start on Friday against the Royals. Arrieta did go seven innings, but allowed four runs on eight hits. He struck out five and did not walk a batter, throwing 65 of his 93 pitches for strikes in the 8-4 loss.

Three of the runs Arrieta surrendered on Friday came on solo home runs from Alcides Escobar, Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez. It was the first time since September 2013 that the right-hander gave up at least three home runs in a game.

"They came out swinging, and I expected that," Arrieta said of the Royals, per MLB.com. "It's tough when, as an opposing club, you come here, see what the wind is doing [and it makes you want to swing for the fences]."

Arrieta (4-5) still holds an impressive 3.18 ERA, and will look to get back in the win column in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Miami.

Cubs switch starts of Tsuyoshi Wada, Jason Hammel
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cubs have flip-flopped starters Tsuyoshi Wada and Jason Hammel in their rotation this weekend against the Royals, per ESPN. The former is now set to start Saturday and the latter Sunday.

The team wants to give more time to Hammel, who is dealing with a fingernail issue. It has certainly not affected him too negatively on the mound - he has six straight quality starts.
