CHICAGO — Jake Arrieta will have to wait for his chance to match Johnny Vander Meer.

Arrieta’s first start since his no-hitter against Cincinnati last week was pushed back when the Chicago Cubs’ game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night, April 27th was postponed because of rain.

A makeup date was not announced.

Arrieta’s start was pushed back to Thursday’s series finale.

Vander Meer is the only pitcher to throw no-hitters in consecutive starts, beating the Boston Braves and Brooklyn for Cincinnati in June 1938.
