Final Score: Chicago Cubs 4, Baltimore 1

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Javier Baez and Luis Valbuena homered to back seven solid innings from Jake Arrieta as the Chicago Cubs beat the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles, 4-1, in the opener of a three-game series. Arrieta (7-4), who took a perfect game into the fifth, gave up one run on four hits against his former team. The right-hander is in his first full season with the Cubs after being acquired from Baltimore last July. Nelson Cruz hit his major league-leading 34th homer of the season for the Orioles, who had a four-game winning streak snapped. Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman (7-5) allowed three runs on six hits while striking out seven over five innings.
