June 18 11:58 PM PT12:58 AM MT1:58 AM CT2:58 AM ET2:58 ET6:58 GMT14:58 11:58 PM MST1:58 AM EST2:28 AM VEN10:58 UAE1:58 AM CT-Jake Arrieta fell to 6-5, allowing three runs - two earned - on four hits and two walks in 4.2 innings, as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Saturday.

Analysis: Arrieta was the Cubs' offensive star, belting a two-run homer in the fifth inning, but was inconsistent on the mound for a second consecutive outing. The struggling former Cy Young winner is dealing with a cut on his right thumb, which could explain why he hasn't made it out of the fifth inning in either of his past two starts. The injury also makes him more of a risk from a fantasy standpoint.

Analysis: Arrieta came into the matchup having yielded only three runs across 12 innings over his previous two starts and began this outing with four scoreless frames before becoming undone in the fifth. The former Cy Young winner has pitched better of late, and likely faces a less daunting assignment when he goes up against the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
