Jake Arrieta wasn’t bad in this one, despite the four runs in six innings. Most of the hits he gave up were relatively weak contact, well-placed, and well-timed. He struck out six and walked just one over six innings, so there were definitely some positives.

It didn’t much matter, because the Cubs’ offense was absolutely dominated by the Giants’ pitching staff. At least Jose Veras and Blake Parker got an excuse to throw scoreless innings, and chip away at their robust ERAs.
