On The Board
Jake Arrieta (Chicago Cubs)
After being so close to tossing no-hitters on three occasions in 2014 and once this season (7+ no-hit innings), he finally acheived the no hit-no run feat. It is also the sixth no-no of the year. This no-hitter and the previous one, make it the fourth fewest amount of days (9) between no-hitters and its also number fourteen for the franchise. Arrieta is the first pitcher to reach 17 wins on the season, and he has won each of his last 6 starts (ERA 0.42). The Los Angeles Dodgers become the twelfth team to be no-hit twice in a season. Chase Utley (LAD) is the eighth player to be the final out in two games of no hit-no run ball.
