Twitter lit up with jaw-dropping Jake Arrieta stats following his latest no-hitter Thursday night in Cincinnati.
The Cubs ace is in the midst of a dominant stretch that has produced some seriously out-of-this-world numbers.

Arrieta took home the National League Cy Young Award in 2015 and this season, he's picked up right where he left off (or even taken it up a notch?).
Lost in the no-hit buzz is that Arrieta's season ERA is now at 0.90.#Cubs— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) April 22, 2016

Can anything sum up Arrieta's reign of supremacy better than this?

The Cubs run differential is + 60 which is equal or greater than the runs scored by 14 teams.
