LOS ANGELES -- After Jake Arrieta struck out Chase Utley to complete his first career no-hitter, he had just a second to hug his catcher Miguel Montero before being mobbed by a wave of teammates on the infield grass as the Cubs beat the Dodgers, 2-0, on Sunday night.
"He was outstanding. I told him I'm proud of him," Montero said. "He worked his butt off and he works harder than anyone in the game. That's his reward right there. Hopefully more to come."
