Arrieta strong on a cold night

Arrieta may be use to the chilly nights in Chicago, the way it looked last night at CBP

Jake Arrieta earned his 2nd win in a Phillies uniform (last night it was the throwback uni!) behind a 10 strikeout night and 9 hits by the Phillies leading to a lopsided 7-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pirates were no easy foe going into the game at 12-6 on the year, the Phillies improved to 11-7 on the season, and dropped the Pirates down a notch to 12-7. The Pirates are in first place in the NL Central.

You never know what you're going to see at the ballpark, and last night, it was J.P. Crawford scoring from first base on a three run single, the first time the Phillies have done that in 40 years as reported on Cut4 on

The Phils play Game 2 of the 4-game series with the Pirates on Friday night at 7:05 PM - it should be a lot warmer than it was at the ballpark last night. The pitchers will be Ben Lively (0-1 5.87 ERA) vs. Ivan Nova (2-1 4.88 ERA)

The Pirates have been one of the hottest teams in the MLB in the first couple weeks here's how they got to first place in the NL Central:
