Analysis: Arrieta (10-5, 2.53 ERA), coming off a one-hit shutout against Cincinnati last week, limited St. Louis to two hits and an unearned run while striking out 10. The right-hander went 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA in his final month of the season and could be a key member of the Cubs' rotation next season. He gave up one run or fewer in 15 of his 25 starts in 2014.

Analysis: Arrieta (9-5) struck out 13 and walked one in his first career complete game. He was five outs from the first no-hitter at Wrigley Field in 42 years when Phillips drove an 0-2 pitch to deep left-center, just beyond the desperate dive of center fielder Matt Szczur on the warning track. Arrieta carried a perfect game into the seventh inning against Cincinnati on June 24 before Billy Hamilton singled. In his next outing, he held Boston hitless until two outs in the eighth.

Analysis: The performance saw Arrieta's ERA jump from 2.11 to 2.80. Owners will look for a bounce-back showing from Arrieta against Milwaukee on Monday.
