The Chicago Cubs ace still improved to 5-0 and won his 16th consecutive decision with a 7-2 victory over Milwaukee.
Analysis: Jonathan Villar led off the game with an opposite-field, broken-bat single over third base. Arrieta finished with one run, three hits and four walks allowed in five innings, the first run he's given up at home since July 25. His run of consecutive quality starts also ended at 24, two shy of Bob Gibson's record from 1967-68. Arrieta's streak of consecutive winning decisions is the longest since Jose Contreras of the White Sox won 17 in a row from August 2005-July 2006.

Analysis: The National League Cy Young Award winner and Chicago Cubs ace didn't name names Tuesday but said his teammates have heard rumors from other players that the right-hander has used PEDs to fuel his emergence with the Cubs. The 30-year-old Arrieta credited his career turnaround to a comprehensive workout program and eating well. Manager Joe Maddon added "command and confidence" to the mix.

Analysis: The reigning NL Cy Young winner threw the first no-hitter of the Major League Baseball season. Arrieta (4-0) struck out six, walked four and allowed only six balls hit out of the infield. He threw 119 pitches, retiring Eugenio Suarez on a routine flyball to right field to end it. Arrieta also no-hit the Dodgers 2-0 last Aug. 30, part of one of the best pitching stretches in club history.
