For the second time this month, the Los Angeles Dodgers were no-hit. This time, Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta threw the gem in the Cubs' 2-0 win in LA. It wasn't without some controversy though, as Arrieta benefitted from a nice scoring decision in the third inning as Enrique Hernandez reached on an error.
Arrieta dominated throughout, however, walking only one and striking out 12, including the side in the 9th to seal the no-hitter. This was Arrieta's first career no-hitter.
With the win, Chicago stays 5.5 games ahead of San Francisco for the second wild card, and the loss keeps the Dodgers only 3.5 ahead of the Giants in the NL West.
This is the sixth no-hitter thrown in the MLB this year, and the Cubs' first since Carlos Zambrano's in 2008.
