2015 No-Hitter 6, Pat Hoberg (1; Jake Arrieta)

HP Umpire Pat Hoberg called Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta's no-hitter against the Dodgers, the sixth of 2015. Hoberg was joined for Sunday's Cubs-Dodgers game by 1B Umpire and Crew Chief Jim Joyce, 2B Umpire Greg Gibson, and 3B Umpire Chad Fairchild. This is Hoberg's first career MLB no-hitter; crewmate Greg Gibson called the most recent no-hitter amongst the crew, Clayton Kershaw's no-no against the Rockies on June 18, 2014.

Sunday's is the first MLB no-hitter since August 21, 2015, also of Los Angeles (John Tumpane; Mike Fiers).

Hoberg received 54 callable pitches from Fiers, a total of 36 balls and 18 called strikes. The look:

Balls: 36 called balls outside of strike zone / 0 called balls within strike zone = 36/36 = 100.0% Accuracy.
Strikes: 15 called strikes inside strike zone / 3 called strikes outside strike zone = 15/18 = <90.0% Accuracy.
Total Raw Accuracy Score = 51/54 = 94.4% Accuracy (+3 for Arrieta).
