Some news stories get repeated, even when they’re unexpected and inexplicable.
Like the Dodgers -- the $300-million, division-leading Dodgers – getting no-hit for the second time in nine days.
But it really happened again, this time the Dodgers being set down without a hit by Jake Arrieta in the Cubs’ 2-0 victory Sunday night at Dodger Stadium.
It was only Aug. 21 that the Astros' Mike Fiers no-hit the Dodgers. Arrieta, at least, is one of baseball’s hottest pitchers.
Arrieta (17-6) made it look fairly easy Sunday, striking out 12 and handcuffing the Dodgers all night with an overpowering fastball and sharp breaking off-speed stuff.
