CUBS WIN! FLY THE W! The Cubs beat the Toronto Blue Jays in the series opener by a 7-4 score! Jake Arrieta continued his dominance as he now has allowed 2 ER or fewer in all seven of his outings since the All-Star Break! Jake's final line was 6.1 IP, 6 hits, 1 ER, 2 BB, and 6 strikeouts. The Cubs had some early offense with 3 runs scored in the 2nd inning off of 4 hits in that inning. Then, Anthony Rizzo drove home 2 more runs on a 2-run single in the 5th inning. The Jays added 3 runs in the 8th off of Pedro Strop with a 2 out rally. However, the Cubs were able to get some breathing room from a 2-run home run off of Javier Baez's bat for his 20th HR of the year. Albert Almora Jr., Rizzo, Victor Caratini, and Javy Baez all recorded multiple hits in the win. C.J. Edwards and Wade Davis didn't give up a run in the 'pen and the Cubs are currently 1.5 games ahead of the Brewers at a 64-57 record. Wade Davis earned his 25th save of the year. Tomorrow, the first pitch is at 1:20 CT with Q on the mound for the Cubs vs. Nick Tepesch as the projected starter for the Jays.
