Lake, Rizzo HR, Lead Arrieta, Cubs over Cardinals
A day after the Cubs tagged St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright, they came back to beat Michael Wacha (2-3).
The Cubs have their longest winning streak since a three-game sweep of San Francisco in late July. Arrieta struck out seven over 5 1-3 innings in his season debut. He gave up four hits. Chicago's bullpen combined to pitch 3 2-3 scoreless innings. Brian Schlitter (1-0) got two outs for the win and Hector Rondon worked around a pair of leadoff singles in the ninth for his third save.
