Jake Arrieta became MLB's first 20-game winner of the 2015 season as the Cubs beat the Brewers 4-0 at Wrigley. Jake is the Cubs' first 20-game winner since Jon Lieber's masterful 2001 season on the North Side. Arrieta's line: CG, 9 IP, 11 K, 0 ER. The guy is nails!
Kris Bryant had a big night at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a 2-run HR and 3 RBI, and Kyle Schwarber went 2-for-3 with an RBI and 2 runs scored.
Meanwhile … the Nats lost at home to the O's, the Giants are at the Padres, the Bucs are at the Rox, and the Redbirds beat the Redlegs.
So, here are the Cubs Magic Numbers as of 9:30 pm CDT:
