For the second time in less than a year, Chicago Cubs hurler Jake Arrieta has thrown a no-hitter as he blanked the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night.
Arrieta, who no-hit the Los Angeles Dodgers on Aug. 30, 2015, walked four batters in the game, but he struck out six batters in his second career no-no.
The no-hitter breaks the Reds' remarkable streak of 7,110 games without being held without a hit.
As for the Cubs’ batters, they were in fine form on Thursday as they beat the Reds 16-0. Kris Bryant cracked two home runs, including a grand slam, and Anthony Rizzo, Ben Zobrist, and David Ross all went deep to support Arrieta in the contest.
