The Boston Red Sox seemed to be breaking out of their offensive funk when the entire lineup contributed to a big win on Sunday, but a return home provided a return to the shortcomings. The Chicago Cubs will attempt to limit Boston's sagging offense again when they visit for the middle contest of their three-game series on Tuesday. Jake Arrieta took a no-hitter into the eighth inning as the Cubs took the opener 2-0.Boston managed only two hits on Monday and has scored three or fewer runs in 13 of its last 16 games. Chicago is not exactly lighting up the scoreboard either, and Anthony Rizzo is hitless in his last three games as the team has totaled four runs in that span. The Cubs scored three or fewer runs in seven of their last 10 contests but got all the offense they needed on one swing Monday as Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run homer.TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, CSN (Chicago), NESN (Boston)PITCHING MATCHUP: Cubs RH Edwin Jackson (5-8, 5.22 ERA) vs. Red Sox RH Clay Buchholz (3-4, 6.75)Jackson has failed to complete six innings in any of his last three starts and was reached for four runs on six hits and four walks over 5 1/3 innings against Cincinnati on Wednesday.
