CHICAGO (AP) – Zack Godley pitched three-hit ball over six scoreless innings, Jake Lamb drove in all the runs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the surging Chicago Cubs 3-0 on Wednesday night.
The loss was just the fourth in 18 games since the All-Star break for the NL Central-leading Cubs. The defending champions got shut down by Godley after pouring on a season-high 16 runs in Tuesday’s romp.
Lamb hit a two-run double against Jake Arrieta in the sixth and an RBI double off Justin Wilson in the eighth.
Godley (5-4) was every bit as stingy after tossing seven scoreless innings in a win at St. Louis last week.
The right-hander struck out five and walked two. In his past two starts, he has allowed a combined seven hits while striking out 12 and walking four.
