Arrieta (5-8) took the loss Saturday against the Marlins, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits across three innings. He fanned five and did not issue a walk. A fielding error by Kris Bryant helped set up a three-run first inning for Miami that was capped off by a two-run long ball by Adam Duvall. A Jose Lobaton passed ball assisted the Marlins in pushing a fourth run across in the second inning before a second two-run homer by Duvall gave Miami a 6-0 lead in the third. While his defense let him down a bit Saturday, the right-hander has now allowed four earned runs in consecutive shaky outings. He'll look to get his first win since May 25 when he takes the ball at some point during next weekend's series at Dodger Stadium.
Arrieta (5-7) took the loss Monday against the Mets after allowing four runs on four hits and four walks over five innings. He struck out three. The veteran has now failed to pitch past five innings in six straight starts, posting a 6.66 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 22:14 K:BB through 25.2 innings over that stretch. Arrieta hasn't delivered useful fantasy numbers since 2018, and despite his solid April performance, it looks like the current campaign will be no different for the 35-year-old.
Arrieta allowed one run across five innings and did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Padres. He gave up four hits and a walk while striking out six. Arrieta pitched reasonably well and matched San Diego ace Yu Darvish through five innings, though he left with the game tied 1-1. The veteran righty had picked up losses in each of his last two appearances, yielding eight earned runs across just 5.2 combined innings in those starts, so this was a step in the right direction. He'll take a 4.97 ERA into his next scheduled outing Monday against the Mets.
Arrieta (5-6) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Padres after allowing six runs on six hits and two walks while fanning one across two innings. This was Arrieta's worst start of the season by a wide margin, as he needed 58 pitches just to complete the first two innings, gave up two homers and allowed six of the eight runs the Cubs allowed during the game. The veteran right-hander has given up four or more runs in three of his last six outings and owns an 8.28 ERA during that stretch, a span in which he's tossed more than five complete innings just once. The veteran will try to bounce back next week in a tough matchup on the road against the Padres.
Arrieta (5-5) allowed five runs (two earned) on six hits and four walks over 3.2 innings Sunday, striking out three and taking the loss against Cincinnati. The Reds jumped on Arrieta right out of the gate, plating three runs in the first inning. He later gave up two more runs in the fourth, including a solo homer by Eugenio Suarez. Arrieta's ERA bumped up to 4.41 as he fell to 5-5 through 10 starts this season. He's projected to face the Giants on the road next weekend.
