CHICAGO -- For the first time since June 16, Jake Arrieta allowed four earned runs. But seeing the end of his 21-game quality start streak did not matter on Monday night, as the Cubs bludgeoned the Cardinals with a record six home runs en route to an 8-6 victory in Game 3 of the National League Division Series at Wrigley Field.
But ask Arrieta if he remembers that day in June, when he was tagged for four earned runs in five innings against the Indians. He doesn't.
