In a matchup of two former Horned Frog star pitchers, the Chicago Cubs’ Jake Arrieta had the upper hand over Cincinnati’s Brandon Finnegan.

In fact, he had the upper hand over all of Cincinnati.

Arrieta threw his second career no-hitter Thursday night in a 16-0 win against the Reds. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner walked four and struck out six.

One of those strikeout victims was Finnegan, who went down at the plate in his only appearance against Arrieta. Finnegan gave up five runs, all of them earned, and was removed after the fourth inning.

The win moves Arrieta to 4-0 on the year, with an ERA of 0.87. He also had two hits on the night and scored a run.
