D-backs starters still without a win

PHOENIX (AP) -

Jake Arrieta homered and pitched seven innings, helping the Chicago Cubs finish off an impressive first week by beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3 on Sunday.
    
Chicago is tied with Cincinnati for the best record in the NL at 5-1. The Cubs host the Reds in their home opener Monday night at Wrigley Field.
    
Arrieta (2-0) allowed three runs and eight hits, striking out six. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner gave himself a boost with a two-out, two-run homer in the second inning off Shelby Miller (0-1).
    
Arrieta hit two home runs in 2015 and has three in his career.
