  • Hendriks wins again, pitches Cubs past Reds (The Associated Press)

    The Chicago Cubs' young hitters have received virtually all the attention late this summer. Hendricks, who didn't reach the majors until July, kept up his impressive rookie season, pitching seven strong innings as the Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 Wednesday night for a sweep. Hendricks (7-2) allowed one run and seven hits. ''I came in just trying to learn and see what big league hitters and big league baseball, overall, was all about,'' Hendricks said.

  • Arrieta's no-hit bid for Cubs broken up in 8th (The Associated Press)

    CHICAGO (AP) -- Brandon Phillips has doubled with one out in the eighth inning for Cincinnati's first hit off Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta.

  • Diamondbacks-Rockies Preview (The Associated Press)

    It's no surprise that rookies Vidal Nuno and Yohan Flande are winless when taking the mound for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies since those teams own the two worst records in the NL. Nuno and the visiting Diamondbacks look to avoid falling into a tie with the Rockies for last place in the league when these clubs conclude their season series with a four-game set beginning Thursday night. Arizona (62-90) acquired Nuno from the Yankees on July 6, and after going 2-5 with a 5.42 ERA in 17 appearances for New York, the left-hander is 0-6 with a 3.68 ERA in 12 starts with the Diamondbacks. A lack of support has been the main reason why Nuno has yet to earn a victory, as Arizona has scored two or fewer runs with him on the mound in nine of those outings.

  • Arrieta takes no-hitter into 8th, Cubs blank Reds (The Associated Press)

    In his previous start against the Cincinnati Reds, Jake Arrieta gave up six runs. Arrieta (9-5) took a no-hit bid into the eighth inning before giving up Brandon Phillips' one-out double, the only blemish for the Chicago Cubs pitcher in a 7-0 shutout Tuesday night. ''It was nice to finally shake the catcher's hand at the end of the game,'' Arrieta said. He carried a perfect game into the seventh inning against Cincinnati on June 24 before Billy Hamilton singled.
