Cubs look to produce more offense vs. Orioles

Cubs look to produce more offense vs. Orioles Cubs look to produce more offense vs. Orioles
Ellis Copeland | 17 July, 2017, 22:49

Jesse joined ESPN Chicago in September 2009 and covers the Chicago Cubs for ESPNChicago.com and ESPN Radio 1000.

Making his first appearance at Camden Yards since he was traded by Baltimore four years ago, Jake Arrieta settled down after a wild start to hold the Orioles to four hits over six and two thirds innings and lead the Chicago Cubs to a 10-3 win Saturday night. "I just say thanks ... to the Chicago White Sox for giving me the opportunity".

After a quick first inning, the Cubs tagged Jiménez for four runs on six hits in the second inning, then added a two-run home run by third baseman Kris Bryant in the fourth inning that helped spell the end for Jiménez.

"I can plug him in with the rest of our guys".

Still, he's saying it's a bit early to really push his team although Maddon has a good feeling about where his team is at with the second half just underway.

You better believe he could. He got that, and it might be the start of a strong second half for Arrieta, as well as helping him earn some of that "lost" money he may have cost himself.

The Chicago Cubs banged out four homers in the first three innings on Friday night to go ahead 8-0.

Trumbo, Trey Mancini and Joey Rickard had RBI singles in the fifth off reliever Justin Grimm to cut the lead to 8-6. Let Quintana take control. "Not steering him down the wrong path just based on a scouting report". And if you didn't, then you do now! Quintana is 4-8 with a 4.49 ERA and 109 strikeouts this season. He wants to show his new teammates that the Cubs' brass made the right move.

Authorities find $1 million in marijuana packed in brand new Ford Fusions
Marijuana worth $1 million was discovered in the trunks of new Mexican-made Fusion sedans at a dealership in OH , reports CNN . Balzano says that this is the first time a seizure of this kind happened in his locality.


"That's in the past right now", Quintana said.

The Cubs gave up four big prospects for Quintana, and he's hoping to do big things for his new team. His manager was asked to put on his scout's hat to assess what the Cubs are getting.

"I really liked his routine on the mound", Maddon said.

"We're playing a world champion team that everyone knew was going to get going at some point", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. He is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA but was the losing pitcher in the All-Star Game Tuesday in Miami. He is now an extremely important part of Cubs in 2017 and beyond. That's the part that would've made it even more hard. "Unfortunately, they got started here".

"Today was his day, " catcher Willson Contreras said. "Jon cuts the ball more than Quintana does". There's still a lot of them over there. "I think he's under control the next three years for them".

For the second day in a row, Baltimore's starting pitcher struggled.

While Lester downplayed the similarities and Quintana embraced them, Epstein pointed out one more difference. He can take that optimism to another level simply by being as good as he has been, nothing more, as his presence could elevate a rotation in need of a boost.
