MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jake Arrieta pitched a four-hitter and Dexter Fowler hit a grand slam, leading the Chicago Cubs over the Minnesota Twins 8-0 on Sunday.

After walking a career-high six in his last start, Arrieta (6-6) didn’t walk anyone and struck out seven for his second career shutout and first since last Sept. 16 against Cincinnati.

Minnesota has lost 10 of its last 15 and has been blanked three times in June.

Fowler’s second career slam capped a six-run eighth inning. The shot brought the several thousand Cubs fans at sold-out Target Field to their feet for a prolonged standing ovation and “Let’s go Cubs!” chant.

Kyle Gibson (4-6) took the loss.
