Jake Arrieta's no-hitter continues his transformation into one of baseball's best pitchers - Yahoo Sports

Just Friday afternoon, two days before he'd make his 27th start of the season, Jake Arrieta had mused about the number of no-hitters he'd taken into the late innings the past couple years, none of which had ended in a no-hitter.

"Yeah," he said with a grin, "I'll keep trying for one of those."

On Sunday night, Arrieta no-hit the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

While this might fold into other stories – the no-hitter was the sixth in the big leagues since June 9, the second against the $300 million Dodgers in nine days, the first for a snake-bitten Chicago Cubs in seven years – there is first Arrieta, the 29-year-old right-hander kicked into a trade two years ago who became an ace.

He won his 17th game Sunday night, by a score of 2-0. He won it the way he wins anymore, with hard, precise fastballs, and with what some consider the best slider in the game, a darting curveball and with a sinker that runs low and hard and in the opposite direction of the slider.

Trial for man accused of killing woman at mall in Coralville to be moved to Story County

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The trial for a man accused of killing a woman earlier this summer at a mall in Coralville has been moved from an eastern Iowa courthouse to one in central Iowa.

The motion to move the trial was filed earlier this month by an attorney for Alexander Kozak. The 22-year-old Kozak has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the June shooting death of 20-year-old Andrea Farrington at Coral Ridge Mall.

Defense attorney Peter Persaud successfully argued that media attention made it too difficult to find an impartial jury in eastern Iowa.

This Iowa poll shows just how amazing Donald Trump’s rise has been - The Washington Post

Donald Trump leads the Republican 2016 field in a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics of Iowa voters. But that's not the real story.

The real story is contained deeper in the poll. In May, when the Register last polled, 27 percent of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers viewed Trump favorably while 63 percent regarded him unfavorably. In the new poll, which was released Saturday night, Trump's favorable number is at 61 percent and his unfavorable at 35 percent.

Um, WHAT?

Let me put it another way: W-H-A-T???

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago Cubs August 29, 2015

LOS ANGELES (AP) Andre Ethier singled in a pair of go-ahead runs in the seventh inning, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers rally past the Chicago Cubs 5-2 Saturday night for their fifth consecutive victory.

The NL West leaders have their third winning streak of five or more games for the first time since May 7-12. The Dodgers overcame a balk by starter Mat Latos that put the Cubs ahead in the fifth to pound out six of their 11 hits in a four-run seventh.

J.P. Howell (5-1) earned the win in relief, striking out one in one-third of an inning.

Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth to earn his 27th save in 29 chances.

The Cubs dropped their fourth in a row, their most losses since five straight from June 24-28, which included two defeats to the Dodgers.
