Arrieta posted his ninth straight quality start in his last outing, but did not get a decision. What was encouraging was that he settled down after a rough 24-pitch first inning, and held St. Louis to two runs over six.

Wada picked up his first big league win in his last start, holding the Rockies to one run over seven innings. He had better command of his pitches and was able to get out of a few jams. He also wasn't as nervous as his first start at Wrigley Field.

Jackson struggled with command in his last start, throwing 105 pitches over four innings. Maybe a new month will help. In six July starts, he was 0-3 with a 7.50 ERA. The problem has been the first inning, in which he has a 7.77 ERA.
