Arrieta on incredible hot streak heading into Wild Card game
There has been no hotter pitcher in baseball than the Cubs’ Jake Arrieta, so it is no surprise he gets the start in the National League Wild Card games against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
In Arrieta’s last 13 starts the Cubs have gone 13-0, with Arrieta himself gong 11-0 with a 0.57 ERA, a 0.67 WHIP and 95 strikeouts in 94 1/3 innings pitched.
He faces a tough matchup in Pittsburgh against Gerrit Cole and the Pirates, who himself is 3-0 with a 2.57 ERA in his last three starts, but books have the Cubs pegged as -127 road favorites.
