Arrieta was a question before the game started. He was sick all day Sunday, apparently the victim of food poisoning. He said he had a pork chop at the team hotel in Atlanta on Saturday night, which he believes was the cause of his illness.
“Wasn't able to eat all day yesterday. I was able to stomach a banana and that was about it,” Arrieta said. “Once I got some food in my stomach this morning, I felt a little bit better. But just walking around I was sluggish and it was hard to find that energy level.”
