Quintana Shines In Cubs Debut


The Orioles' day was short on offensive highlights.

MARINERS 7, WHITE SOX 6: At Chicago, Nelson Cruz homered on a 3-0 pitch from Chris Beck (1-1) leading off the 10th inning, his 19th home run this season, as Seattle overcame a 5-0 deficit and won its fourth straight.

Arrieta pitched around trouble in the first inning, striking out Mark Trumbo with runners on first and second and two outs. The ball fell away, but after that, Arrieta mostly sailed along.

Joseph put the Orioles on the board with a solo homer in the fifth. Five Los Angeles pitchers combined for 16 strikeouts with no walks.

Working quickly and efficiently on an 84-degree afternoon against a strong American League lineup, Quintana needed only 100 pitches to cruise through seven scoreless innings, allowing only two more singles and finishing with 12 strikeouts against zero walks.

He defeated the Orioles in Wrigley Field in August 2014, but coming here was fun for him. "His ball moves so much that you have to make him be around the zone". There's still a lot of them over there. He just did everything really well. It really was. The fans were gracious.

"But, all in all, it was a great experience. They're right next to each other for most valuable pitchers the last three, four years". At the same time, this was a big step for me in my career. It was an enjoyable experience.

"We've thought of some, [what] a lot of people would consider some unorthodox stuff, as everybody else in baseball has", Showalter said. Gausman, who posted a 5.85 ERA during the first half of the season allowed a career-high four home runs and tied a career high of eight earned runs in just three innings in a 9-8 loss to the Cubs. Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward added two-run homers in the second and third, respectively, and Chicago took the early eight-run lead.

"That's really frustrating to be that close to getting out of an inning unscathed", manager Buck Showalter said. "It gives you a shot in the arm, 'Let's get going'". "I felt like I was maybe pressing a little too hard a few times, but I wanted to see where I was at swing-wise, what it felt like to turn and twist at that game speed, so it felt good".

The Cubs, who ended the longest championship drought in North American sport a year ago by winning their first World Series since 1908, had ended the first half of the season with a 43-45 record and trailing the Milwaukee Brewers by 5 1/2 games in the National League Central division. "They know why and where they're going with that pitch". "I think it's big for us to bounce back against the Rangers and get a nice comfortable win, if there is such a thing".

"It obviously just gives us that extra confidence, " Bryant said of adding Quintana, an All-Star last season, to the rotation after a disappointing first half.
