Cubs' Arrieta back for opener of showdown in Milwaukee

(TSX / STATS) -- MILWAUKEE -- Jake Arrieta returns to the mound Thursday as the Chicago Cubs try to lock down the National League Central when they open a four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.

The right-hander has been out since tweaking his right hamstring on Sept. 4. He missed two turns through the rotation but reported no issues after a 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and was cleared to return.

"He looked really good," Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said afterward Arrieta's side session. "Mechanically sound. Executed his pitches and didn't feel anything.
