Cubs 4, Athletics 0
OAKLAND, Calif. — Cubs starter Jake Arrieta pitched eight innings of three-hit ball to get his first victory in more than a month. Arrieta was 0-3 in his previous five starts and 1-4 since ending a 20-decision winning streak on June 22. He struck out four and walked one on 108 pitches. The NL Central-leading Cubs have won five straight and 16 of 22. Ben Zobrist's two-out two-run single off former A's teammate Sonny Gray broke a scoreless tie in the top of the third. Zobrist and Addison Russell had two hits each for the Cubs.
