CHICAGO — Jake Arrieta helped the Cubs to a 3-2 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday night.

But it was a blow from Arrieta's nose — not his arm — that has caught everyone's attention.

The buildup was smooth, professional: Arrieta stepped back, repositioned his hat and took a deep breath.

Then he blew the most powerful, disgusting snot rocket we've ever seen.

Dare we say he literally blew it for the Cubs in Game 4?

The snot rocket — or, if we're trying to be delicate, "farmer's blow" — became something of a sensation on social media. People shared video and gif of the blow alongside colorful commentary.

Many have worried the game would be the last time Arrieta would play as a Cub — so maybe he was just trying to leave Wrigley something to remember him by.
