Career stats

Arrieta won his 18th game in his past start vs. the Cardinals, throwing seven scoreless. He posted his 12th double-digit strikeout game. He was matched up with Miguel Montero, and it will be interesting to see if the Cubs stay with that battery.

Zastryzny will start in the series finale, although the rest of the bullpen will be on call. The lefty was a combined 10-5 with a 4.31 ERA in 24 games (23 starts) at Triple-A and Double-A this season. He has pitched only in relief in Chicago.

Nova’s defense did him no favors after a poor first inning in a shaky four-frame start against the Nats on Saturday. After an incredible eight-start run, Nova has allowed seven earned runs in seven innings his past two times out.

This will be Martinez’s final regular-season start and what the Cards hope is a Wild Card tuneup. Martinez, who has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts, has a 2.41 ERA in three starts vs. Pittsburgh, but has lost twice.

The Cardinals reworked their rotation so that Wainwright would line up to pitch a potentially critical game 162. He’s had an uneven season but fared better at home, and has helped the Cardinals to wins in five of his last six starts.
