Jake Arrieta stymies former team as Chicago Cubs rout Baltimore Orioles

Cubs: RHP Jake Arrieta (8-7, 4.35 ERA) will make his second career start against his former team. Beane is going to insist on one of their big-time major league position players and I just do not see the Cubs front office letting them go.

"It could really be a big boon to us, there's no question", Chicago Manager Joe Maddon said. "I learned a lot, and I'm able to be the player I am today because of what I went through while I was in the organization". "It's hard to create edginess under those circumstances".

A PHILLIES 5, BREWERS 2: Rookie Nick Williams hit his first career grand slam as Philadelphia won at Milwaukee. The hitting really has been puzzling to Maddon and anyone who follows the Cubs. "To plug him in there with the rest of our guys could be exactly what we're looking for in the second half". He was facing a Cubs team that had the second-best on-base-plus slugging percentage in the National League against left-handed pitchers. He started slowly but has done better in the past six weeks, going 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA since June 1. That's also the year a lot of the studs on the Cubs big team today will be up for new contracts, which perfectly demonstrates where each team is today and what each front office has achieved.

Gray has a 4-4 record with 4.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 74 strikeouts, and only 25 walks this season and was an All-Star in 2015.

And to add to the visual, Quintana made his Cubs debut Sunday, turning in a spectacular performance, allowing just three hits and striking out 12 in seven shutout innings.

Jose Quintana makes his debut for the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Baltimore is 28-7 in Jimenez's last 35 home starts and 0-5 in their last 5 interleague games while the over is 8-0 in their last 8 interleague home games.

Anthony Rizzo added a solo homer in the eighth - the team's eighth in the first two games - as the Cubs finished with 16 hits.

Geese also happens to be the second guest character in " Tekken 7 " with "Street Fighter's" Akuma being the first in the series. As one of the most relevant characters of the SNK universe, he appeared in The King of Fighters games in several roles.

Latest on Jimenez via Rotoworld: Jimenez yielded four earned runs over five innings but got a win Sunday versus the Twins.

One interesting stat from this game: Jose Quintana faced one more batter over seven innings (23) than Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez faced over 3.2 frames (22).

"I think he's just got a better tempo", Davis said.

Quintana said he was "a little nervous in the first inning".

Now, Chicago will try for more offense when the defending World Series champions continue a three-game series with Baltimore. Arrieta, who pitched for the Orioles from 2010 to 2013, walked off the mound to a standing ovation, to a mixture of blue and orange shirts and jerseys in the stand.

Evidently, the Orioles slugger had some rust to shake off after a mighty hack that sent his bat flying over the first baseman into the end of the infield dirt.
