Jake Arrieta of the Cubs threw the first no-hitter of the 2016 season, holding the Cincinnati Reds to zero base hits Thursday night.
The Cubs exploded for 18 hits of their own against Reds pitching in the 16-0 win.
It was Arrieta’s second career no-no. He threw one on August 30, 2015, against the Dodgers in a 2-0 victory.
Thursday night, Arrieta went 9 innings, striking out 6 and walking 4 batters. He improved to 4-0 on the season and lowered his ERA to a microscopic 0.87. He threw 119 pitches, 71 for strikes.
Here is the final out and them some celebration video. You’ll notice in the second clip, it appears a fan made his way on to the field to celebrate with the Cubbies on Cincinnati’s Great American Ballpark.
