Arrieta's No-Hit Bid for Cubs Broken up in 8th

Arrieta's No-Hit Bid for Cubs Broken up in 8th

CHICAGO (AP) — Jake Arrieta gave up a double to Brandon Phillips with one out in the eighth inning, Cincinnati’s only hit off the Chicago Cubs pitcher, to lead the Cubs to a 7-0 shutout over the Reds on Tuesday.

Phillips drove an 0-2 pitch to deep left-center, just beyond the desperate dive of center fielder Matt Szczur on the Wrigley Field warning track Tuesday night to break up the no-hit bid.

The only other baserunner Arrieta has allowed came on a leadoff walk in the fourth to Billy Hamilton, who was caught stealing on the next pitch.

The right-hander struck out 13 in the complete game victory.

Arrieta was trying to throw the first no-hitter at Wrigley Field since Milt Pappas blanked the San Diego Padres 8-0 on Sept. 2, 1972.
