Arrieta and Happ lead Cubs past Reds 6-2

JAKE ARRIETA PITCHED ONE-HIT BALL FOR SEVEN INNINGS WITHOUT ALLOWING A STOLEN BASE ON SUNDAY, AND IAN HAPP HOMERED TWICE IN THE BALLPARK WHERE HE PLAYED AS A COLLEGE STAR, LEADING THE CHICAGO CUBS TO A 6-2 VICTORY OVER THE CINCINNATI REDS.

ARRIETA (8-6) WAS COMING OFF A SUBPAR PERFORMANCE THAT CREATED FRICTION AND A SURPRISE MOVE. THE NATIONALS STOLE SEVEN BASES OFF ARRIETA DURING THEIR 6-1 WIN ON TUESDAY, AND CATCHER MIGUEL MONTERO COMPLAINED AFTERWARD ABOUT THE PITCHER'S MOVE TO THE PLATE WITH RUNNERS ON BASE. MONTERO WAS CUT LOOSE THE FOLLOWING DAY.

BACK IN THE BALLPARK WHERE HE THREW A NO-HITTER LAST SEASON, ARRIETA WAS BACK IN FORM, ALLOWING ONLY JOEY VOTTO'S FIRST-INNING SINGLE AND A PAIR OF WALKS _ THE REDS WERE NEVER IN POSITION TO TRY TO STEAL. 

HAPP HIT A TWO-RUN HOMER AND A SOLO SHOT OFF TIM ADLEMAN (5-5), AND ADDED AN RBI SINGLE.

ANTHONY RIZZO ALSO HAD A SOLO HOMER, AND JAVIER BAEZ DOUBLED HOME A RUN.
