Arrieta allowed three baserunners in the first on a single to second baseman Jonathan Schoop and two walks, and was helped out when third baseman Manny Machado was thrown out trying to steal third.

"We've thought of some, [what] a lot of people would consider some unorthodox stuff, as everybody else in baseball has", Showalter said.

The 12 strikeouts tied Matt Garza's record for a Cubs debut.

The loss of Quintana has left a big hole in the White Sox rotation. Playing here in Camden Yards, it's one of the most beautiful parks in all of baseball, and it was just really cool.

A YANKEES, RED SOX split: C.C. Sabathia (8-3) allowed two hits over six innings, and visiting New York won 3-0 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Quintana, whose 95 quality starts since the beginning of 2013 ranked second in the American League when the Cubs traded for him, also ranked second in the AL during that span in worst run support (3.95 runs per nine innings).

Jose Quintana made his debut with the Chicago Cubs on Sunday, and he was dominant against the Baltimore Orioles.

Arrieta showed Baltimore his new form, allowing just two runs on four hits and shutting down the Orioles. He struck out eight, walked three and had his third straight quality start.

"It can really be a big boon to us, " manager Joe Maddon said after Quintana's 8-0 victory gave the Cubs a three-game sweep to open their post-All-Star-break schedule. Braun has been on the disabled list twice this season with calf trouble. I am not saying that those guys are untouchable, but they are all so important to the current success of the team. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Quintana became just the second pitcher since 1900 to strike out 10 or more batters in consecutive starts with two different teams within the same season, joining Randy Johnson in that category.

Baltimore starter Wade Miley's struggles continued. As he looks to start his second half off right, our algorithms project Almora for 7.8 FanDuel points for the price of $2,200.

He got more than that in the second alone, when the Cubs started the inning with four hits and batted around for four runs against Ubaldo Jimenez. "Honestly, sometimes I haven't thrown the ball well, so it's not about hitters". The Rangers will counter with RHP Andrew Cashner (4-7, 3.54).

The Rockies were outscored 23-5 in losing the first two games of the series before salvaging the finale.

Jiménez, meanwhile, ceded 11 hits before he was pulled in the fourth inning, many of them rockets that found patches of outfield grass. Once Quintana went off the board, Oakland's Sonny Gray stepped from the on-deck trade circle to the plate, and the Brewers do have reasons to be interested in the 27-year-old right-hander. "I don't feel like he's going for the strikeout every time as much". Carl Edwards Jr. came in to pitch a scoreless 8th inning with one punch out, and Brian Duensing came in to finish it off in the 9th. Anyone who thought so was thinking way too romantically about the Cubs. Bud Norris got Tim Beckham to ground into a double play for his 14th save, ending Tampa Bay's four-game winning streak.
