Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda and relief corps allow only eight hits over 18 innings to blank the Chicago Cubs 3-0 and 2-0.

Down on the farm, the Cougars won their seventh in a row at Class A while Jake Arrieta made another rehab start for Double-A Tennessee. The Cubs will have an off day on Thursday before they host NL Central Division foe Cincinnati in a three-game weekend series at Wrigley Field.
