Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez was all that stood between Cubs starter Jake Arrieta and his second career no-hitter on Thursday night. Like the rest of his Reds teammates, Suarez didn’t stand a chance. He hit a weak fly ball to shallow right field, easily gloved by right fielder Jason Heyward.

The Cubs’ last no-hitter was thrown by Arrieta on August 30 last year against the Dodgers. And before Arrieta did it last year, Carlos Zambrano was the most recent Cub to complete a no-hitter, doing so in September 2008 against the Astros, then in the NL Central.

For the Reds, it’s the first time they’ve been no-hit in the regular season since the Phillies’ Rick Wise did so in 1971. Roy Halladay no-hit the Reds in the 2010 NLDS.
