Jake Arrieta threw his 10th consecutive quality start in a Chicago Cubs’ 3-1 win as one of the most active MLB Trade Deadline days came to a close.
The Red Sox kept busy by sending starter John Lackey to the Cardinals for starter Joe Kelly and first baseman Allen Craig, then reliever Andrew Miller to the Orioles for minor leaguer Eduaro Rodriguez and utility man Kelly Johnson from the Yankees for Stephen Drew.
The Tigers acquired David Price in a three-team blockbuster with the Rays and Mariners.
