Arrieta went to pitching coach Chris Bosio after the game Tuesday night and said that he will be available for the pivotal game. Arrieta threw 102 pitches in Game six giving up two earned runs on three hits, walking three, and had nine strikeouts.
The Cubs will also have starting pitchers Jon Lester and John Lackey at their disposal if needed.
