Human pitching cyborg Jake Arrieta threw his second no-hitter in the last year on Thursday night in Cincinnati against the Reds.  If that wasn’t bad enough for the Reds, the Cubs also managed to score 16 runs!  Getting no-hit is bad enough, but allowing over two touchdowns makes it even worse.

Thankfully, Reds Twitter had an awesome sense of humor about it.

It started with their varying attempts at rallying to get a hit off Arrieta.

Finally, when that didn’t happen, they posted this update after the game.

Four walks!  Nothing like keeping on the sunny side of life.

If that sounds familiar, it should.  The Cubs used the same tactic when trying to cope with a Cole Hamels no-hitter thrown against them last season.

At least the Reds and their fans can take solace with the fact that other teams have been there before.
