The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. Joe Kelly Jersey . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. http:///...l-yastrzemski-jersey . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. PITTSBURGH -- Jake Arrieta, last seasons NL Cy Young Award winner, goes into his final start of the regular season Wednesday night with a 2.85 ERA that would be the best of any starter on 26 other teams.With the Chicago Cubs -- owners of baseballs best record for the first time since 1945 -- he ranks only third behind Kyle Hendricks (1.99) and Jon Lester (2.28).Against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the team Arrieta defeated in last seasons NL wild card game, he has certainly been the Cubs ace -- going 9-2 with a 2.44 ERA in 14 starts. The most memorable, of course, came when he threw eight shutout innings as the Cubs eliminated the Pirates from the postseason, 4-0, on Oct. 7, 2015.The atmosphere inside PNC Park wont be nearly as electric Wednesday night, when Arrieta (18-7) attempts to take a strong finish to the season into the postseason against the Pirates (77-80), who wont reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012.Arrieta is coming off one of his best starts of the season: seven scoreless innings, with 10 strikeouts and five hits allowed, in the Cubs 5-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday.I dont need anything to convince me I can sustain this, said Arrieta, who, despite being the NLs best pitcher in 2015, figures to start the postseason behind Lester and Hendricks in the Cubs rotation.That figures to put him on the road for his first postseason start, which probably wouldnt be a bad idea given his 11-2 record and 3.11 ERA in 14 road starts this season.The Pirates dont need any convincing of how good Arrieta is, even if he hasnt been able to suustain the 1. Mookie Betts Jersey. .46 ERA he had in his first 12 starts against them. In his last two starts against Pittsburgh, Arrieta is 0-1 while allowing six runs in each game.Pittsburgh starts rookie right-hander Jameson Taillon (4-4), who began the season in the minors but might end it as their top starter. The 24-year-old Taillon has a 3.00 ERA in 10 career starts at PNC Park and has allowed three earned runs or fewer in 14 of his 17 starts to date.In his most recent start, Taillon gave up three runs in five innings but didnt get the decision as the Pirates came back to beat the Washington Nationals 6-5 on Friday. He gave up three runs and four extra-base hits in the second inning, the only inning in which he allowed any scoring.Thats a really good lineup, Taillon said of the NL East champion Nationals.Hell face another really good lineup in the Cubs (101-56), who are doing little more than counting down to October -- they have five games remaining, two in Pittsburgh and three in Cincinnati. Their first 100-win season since 1945 is partly a byproduct of their uncharacteristic domination of the Pirates.The Cubs 101 wins, including seven in their last eight games, are the franchises most since the 1910 team won 104. Of those 101 wins, 14 are against the Pirates.Their record speaks for itself, Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer said. Its pretty evident theyre one of the top teams in baseball and theyve got a chance to make a run at it.
