CHICAGO - Chicago Cubs pitcher Alec Mills threw a big no-hitter against division rival Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday afternoon, resulting in 5 strikeouts throughout the game.
Mills, 28, became the 16th Cub to toss a no-hitter in only his 15th career start. The last time Cubs’ fans saw a no-hitter was in 2016 when Jake Arrieta achieved the feat against another division rival Cincinnati Reds.
The Cubs are 28-20 and in 1st place in the NL Central in the shortened 60-game MLB season. With just 12 games to go until the start of the playoffs, the Cubs have a 4-game lead on the St. Louis Cardinals for the top spot in their division.
Chicago will stay home for 5 games as they take on the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins until they finish off the season on the road against the Pittsburgh Pirates and in-town rival, the Chicago White Sox.
