CLEVELAND -- By the time Jake Arrieta threw his first pitch on Tuesday night, the Chicago Cubs were already in control of Game 6. By the time the reigning Cy Young winner gave up his first hit, a leadoff double in the fourth, the Cubs led by seven.I knew that was all we were going to need, Arrieta said.And then some.Keeping the Cleveland Indians off balance for 5 2/3 innings, Arrieta didnt let the massive cushion go to waste. He never does. The pitcher who won all 15 games in which his teammates gave him at least six runs stayed aggressive in a largely drama-free 9-3 victory, just as manager Joe Maddon knew he would when he entrusted Arrieta with the ball and Chicagos season in the balance.Maddon didnt give Arrieta any sort of pep talk. The stakes were obvious. So was the weight of history. Who better to trust than the guy whose rebirth in Chicago has come in lockstep with the clubs rise from cuddly also-rans to blossoming juggernaut?I think Jake likes to shoulder these kind of moments, Maddon said a couple of hours before the game.And own them too.Given an early boost by Chicagos suddenly hot again offense, Arrieta struck out nine and walked three to improve to 2-0 in the World Series.In Game 2, he kept the Indians hitless into the sixth to send the Cubs back to Chicago with things all tied up. Tuesday night he battled occasional control issues to move Chicago within one victory of its first championship in 108 years. Even after needing 102 pitches to get 17 outs, he plans to be in the bullpen just in case.Ill definitely be available if outs are needed, Arrieta said. Last game of the year, Game 7 of the World Series. Everybodys pretty much available tomorrow.The only tense moment came after Jason Kipnis scored on Mike Napolis RBI single with one out in the fourth. Arrieta hit Lonnie Chisenhall with a pitch and walked Coco Crisp to load the bases.Just as it appeared Arrieta was on the brink of letting the Indians back in it, he recovered. When Tyler Naquin swung and missed on a 1-2 pitch, the Cubs were out of danger and on their way.Its those bouts of temporary wildness thats taken just a bit off the edge that made Arrieta so unhittable during his Cy Young winning run in 2015, when he practically carried Chicagos pitching staff in the second half as the Cubs locked down a playoff spot and eventually made it all the way to the NLCS before falling to the New York Mets.Arrietas 16 wild pitches led the National League and his 76 walks marked a career high during a year in which he went 18-8 with a 3.10 ERA and made the All-Star team. Its a great season by just about any measure, except when the measure is Arrietas 2015 when he led the majors in wins (22), ERA (1.77) and shutouts (three).That nearly yearlong stretch of dominance ended after the All-Star break. He went just 6-4 over the seasons final 10 weeks and his ERA in September was a mediocre 4.68. His two starts before the World Series were both Chicago losses, one to San Francisco in the Division Series in which he pitched well and another to the Los Angeles Dodgers in which he did not.Arrieta saw his spot as the teams ace vanish too with Jon Lester getting the nod in Game 1 of the World Series and Kyle Hendricks -- who will start Game 7 -- leading the majors with a 2.13 ERA.Yet the prospect of living up to the outsize expectations Arrieta set for himself hardly seem to bother him. He spent Monday taking his two kids trick-or-treating. A day later, he looked at ease silencing the non-Cubs portion of Progressive Field. The only Indian he struggled with in the Series was Kipnis, who went 3 for 5 against him. The rest of the Indians combined to go 2 for 34.By the time Maddon came out to take the ball from Arrieta following a two-out walk in the sixth, the loud Chicago contingent behind the Cubs dugout gave him a rousing ovation.The dream of ending a championship drought that extends back more than a century is very much alive thanks in part to the well-bearded right-hander who makes up in tenacity what he sometimes lacks in polish.Just like his team.

HOOVER, Ala. -- Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said Thursday that he and his staff could have done a better job monitoring the actions of those inside and outside his program that led to NCAA infractions and added to a lengthy NCAA investigation.During the final day of SEC media days, Freeze was asked why he and his staff werent thorough enough with the recruitment of the high-profiled prospects they signed and what they did after those players got on campus.Could we have done better -- obviously we could, Freeze said. We will learn from where we made mistakes, of course, but theres a lot of things we did right also. ... I know how much time we spend into educating our young men of the dangers that they could face, and still, sometimes kids make mistakes, but we look forward to that day -- we really do -- where we can say heres our program, heres what brought us to this allegation, and we will accept the ruling when it comes.In January, Ole Miss received a notice of allegations from the NCAA which listed 28 violations against the schools athletic department. Thirteen of those involved the football program, nine of which were alleged to have occurred under Freezes watch. Most of those nine revolved around All-America left tackle Laremy Tunsil, who on draft night admitted to taking money from an Ole Miss coach and sparked a continued investigation by the NCAA.Freeze said he hasnt spoken to Tunsil at all since draft night, but he said hes heard from counsel that Tunsil would be willing to speak the with NCAA.Freeze has faced a plethora of criticism about this investigation and his staunch backing of his and his staffs actions. That criticism related to a Freeze tweet that he sent out in February of 2013 after many accused Ole Miss of cheating after landing its historic, top-five recruiting class in 2013 that featured Tunsil, Robert Nkemdiche and Laquon Treadwell. All were ranked No. 1 at their respective positions.If you have facts about a violation, send it to compliance@olemiss.edu, Freeze wrote in that now-deleted tweet. If not, please do not slander these young men or insult their family.Amid the allegations facing his program, Freeze said Thhursday that he regretted sending out that tweet.ddddddddddddSometimes you make decisions that probably arent the sharpest, Freeze said. ... Do I regret doing it? Absolutely.While Freeze understands that head coaches are being held more responsible by the NCAA for improprieties that could take place involving other members of their staffs, Freeze said that its tough for any head coach to monitor every aspect of his program, both inside and out.It is what it is, and we have to be over every aspect of our program, he said. I can tell you I have absolute zero interest in cutting corners for success. I have a lot of failures and a lot of stuff thats not real great ... but me wanting to cut corners is not one of them. Having said that, if mistakes are made, were held accountable to a certain standard, unless you can prove youve set the proper atmosphere with compliance, which I think I have.I dont think theres any head coach at our level that can control everything that happens in this day and time.Freeze added that he hasnt been given any timeline on any sort of resolution from the NCAA on its current investigation. When its come to recruiting, Freeze said the investigation hasnt greatly impacted Ole Miss current class. According to ESPNs RecruitingNation, the Rebels 2017 class is currently unranked, but four of Ole Miss 10 commitments are ESPN 300 members.Im probably too candid, but were doing really well because people know us for who we are, Freeze said. If you look at all the top top guys in the nation -- a good percentage of them -- were in it [for them]. Some of them are waiting to see [what the NCAA does with its investigation of Ole Miss], which is very reasonable to me. Ive been very candid with all the recruits and the commits that we have. I dont know what the end game exactly is going to be -- I dont. I have confidence that were going to handle whatever it is and move forward, but I have no idea, its not in my control.I think wed have a few more commitments right now if it wasnt for [the investigation].
