Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs pitched his second no-hitter in a span of 11 regular-season starts, shutting down the Cincinnati Reds in a 16-0 rout Thursday night.

Arrieta (4-0) struck out six, walked four and allowed only six balls to be hit out of the infield. He threw 119 pitches, retiring Eugenio Suarez on a routine fly ball to right field to end it.
