Cubs reopen division lead with win over Diamondbacks”

"In this series, they threw me probably three fastballs", Baez said.

Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta (12-8) gave up three hits and one run in six innings He struck out six and walked three in his sixth consecutive quality start since the All-Star break.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is 3-1-1 in Arrieta's last five starts, is 7-3 in his last 10 outings when he pitches the third game of a series, and is 17-5-1 in his last 23 starts coming off five days of rest.

Arrieta, the 2015 NL Cy Young Award victor, hopes to keep the Cubs' recent road run going; they've won 13 of their last 17 away from Wrigley Field. "I think he's a very good umpire".

Mets 6, Phillies 2 • Michael Conforto and Curtis Granderson hit two-run homers to lead NY to a win in Philadelphia.

"Jon Lester was outstanding", Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "I just wanted to see that happen", Maddon said. It was the first time the feat had happened to the Cubs since October 4, 2015.

"I've been throwing pretty good, we've scored some runs, too, and that helps", the 38-year-old Lackey said. Corbin has allowed 10 earned runs in his last nine innings and is allowing a.275 batting average at home. A passed ball charged to Chris Hermann allowed Ben Zobrist to score, giving the Cubs an early 2-0 edge. "I just liked the matchup". Alex Avila drew a bases-loaded walk to force in the first run of the night.

ANGELS 4, MARINERS 2: Parker Bridwell yielded one run and four hits in six innings, winning his fifth straight decision and extended Los Angeles' winning streak to six as the Angels moved into the second spot in the AL wild-card race. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost eight of their last nine games when allowing more than three runs.

GIANTS, NATIONALS SPLIT: Howie Kendrick hit a game-ending grand slam in the 11th inning, and the Nationals salvaged the finale of a day-night doubleheader at Washington with a 6-2 victory in 11 innings.

Arizona finally got to Lackey in the fifth when Herrmann singled for the second time and Peralta drove an 0-1 pitch into the right-field seats for his 11th homer, making it 3-2 Cubs. Cubs C Willson Contreras, second on the team with 70 RBIs, will be out an estimated four to six weeks with a strained right hamstring.

Chicago had a rally going in the ninth inning, only to have it end on a called final strike the Cubs thought was low.
