Diamondbacks-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- Jake Arrieta is eager to get back on the mound for the first time since throwing his first no-hitter.

He'll try to become the majors' first 18-game winner and capture his seventh straight start Saturday when he faces the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, who will start a pitcher winless in his last nine outings.

Arrieta (17-6, 2.11 ERA) struck out a season-high 12 with one walk in Sunday's 2-0 victory at the Los Angeles Dodgers for his first no-hitter. He became the first Cubs pitcher since 1950 to take a no-hitter into the seventh inning three times in one season in 2014, and finally finished one off this year.
