Josh Bell, Max Moroff power Pittsburgh Pirates to rout of Chicago Cubs

Josh Bell, Max Moroff power Pittsburgh Pirates to rout of Chicago Cubs”

After attempting warmup pitches, Arrieta reportedly met with a trainer before walking off in apparent pain and leaving the game.

Prior to his departure, Arrieta worked 2.1 innings and allowed four hits and three earned runs while striking out four, but also yielding a two-run first inning blast to Pirates first baseman Josh Bell. Max Moroff added three hits and four RBIs for Pittsburgh, including a solo home run off Arrieta (14-9) in the third.

Cubs outfielder Leonys Martin, acquired in a trade with Seattle last week, took the mound with one out in the eighth and gave up a two-run home run to David Freese.

"It was a good day for Pirate baseball", Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. The Cubs hope to continue hitting the ball hard against right-hander Chad Kuhl, who has had trouble with several Chicago hitters including Anthony Rizzo (6-for-12, HR), Jason Heyward (6-for-10, HR), and Ben Zobrist (4-for-6, 2 HRs). Last season, he struggled against the Pirates in six outings, posting a 4.93 ERA, but still owned a career 3.02 mark against the Bucs coming into the afternoon.

The three-run lead was plenty of cushion for Kuhl, who'd lost three of his previous four starts. Kuhl is 1-1 with a 5.87 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Cubs.

"We're interested to see Tyler Glasnow once Indy's season ends and to get Steven Brault some starting opportunities", Huntington said Sunday. We jumped on Arrieta early.

"As of now, I don't foresee it being much of an issue", Arrieta said, standing at his locker and explaining what he believes is a cramping issue and not a serious hamstring injury.

Arrieta was checked out by the Pirates' physicians and said that an MRI may be required after a re-evaluation on Tuesday. "It's kind of a foreign feeling". "It's unfortunate, but I think it's going to be OK". I think it could have been a lot worse.
