The #NoHitter Heard ‘Round the World

It was the game heard round the world as 30-year-old Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta threw his second no-hitter, meaning no player on the opposing team (in this case, the Cincinnati Reds) had a hit nor a run on the 2015 NL Cy Young Winner. Baseball fans took to Twitter to celebrate the pitchers’ impressive feat. Arrieta is the 15th Cub to pitch a no-hitter. Fans and even other teams accounts took to the #nohitter hashtag to celebrate and offer their passive-aggressive condolences to the Reds. The Cubs are currently a favorite to win their first World Series in 108 years, which makes the accomplishment that much more impactful on social media.
