Arrieta tales no-hit bid into 8th for Cubs

BOSTON (AP) - Jake Arrieta held the Red Sox hitless until Stephen Drew singled with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat Boston 2-0 on Monday night in the opener of only the second series between the teams at Fenway Park since 1918.

Six days after taking a perfect game into the seventh inning of his previous start at Wrigley Field against Cincinnati, Arrieta took his no-hit bid a little deeper at fabled Fenway. He allowed only Mike Napoli's fifth-inning walk before Drew line a clean single to right.

Arrieta (5-1) was lifted by Cubs manager Rick Renteria immediately following the hit that came on the right-hander's career-high 120th pitch.

The 28-year-old Arrieta was given a loud ovation before he even got to the foul line, tipping his cap to the Boston crowd. He tipped it again once he got across the line just before getting to the Cubs dugout.
