Cubs beat Dodgers 2-0

LOS ANGELES—Jake Arrieta pitched the sixth no-hitter in the majors this season and second against the Los Angeles Dodgers in 10 days, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 2-0 victory last night.

Arrieta (17-6) struck out a season-high 12 and became the first 17-game winner in the big leagues by throwing baseball’s third no-hitter in less than three weeks.

Blue Jays complete three-game sweep

TORONTO—When Mark Buehrle won a World Series with the Chicago White Sox in 2005, he constantly felt like no matter the deficit they’d win the game. The 2015 Toronto Blue Jays are similar, only with a super-sized offence.

“Here, shoot, if we don’t score eight runs, we had a bad day,” Buehrle said after a 9-2 win against the Detroit Tigers yesterday afternoon at Rogers Centre.

Price wins on birthday

ARLINGTON, Texas—Edwin Encarnacion turned David Price’s 30th birthday into a party—and a win for Toronto’s new ace.

Encarnacion hit a grand slam to extend his hitting streak to 21 games, boosting Price when he was pitching on his birthday for the first time in the majors and helping the Blue Jays to a 12-4 victory against the Texas Rangers last night.
