Jake Arrieta Looks To Extend Scoreless Innings Streak, Cubs Debut New Lineup

1630

Jake Arrieta takes the mound today for the Chicago Cubs and will look to extend his regular season scoreless innings streak. Dating back to last September 16, the reigning Cy Young Award winner hasn’t allowed a run in 29 straight innings, including his seven innings of shutout ball on Opening Night versus the Angels.

The Cubs will also debut a new lineup in today’s series finale. Kris Bryant will get his first start in the outfield as he begins the day in right. Tommy La Stella will take over duties at third base.

Check out the new lineup and everything else you need to know for today’s game.
