Mills hurls 16th no-hitter in Chicago Cubs history


    ALEC Mills tossed the 16th no-hitter in Cubs history as Chicago rolled to a 12-0 win over the host Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday afternoon.

    It was the Cubs’ first no-hitter since Jake Arrieta accomplished the feat on April 21, 2016, against the Cincinnati Reds. The catcher that day was David Ross, who now is in his first year as Cubs manager.

    Mills (5-3) lifted his arms after he got the milestone final out in only the 15th start of his major league career. Shortstop Javier Baez fielded a ground ball and zipped a throw to first base to retire Jace Peterson.

    The Brewers were no-hit for the first time since June 12, 2007, when Justin Verlander dominated them as a member of the Detroit Tigers.

    In other games, it was the Angels 5, Rockies 3; Dodgers 8, Astros 1; Yankees 3, Orioles 1; Twins 7, Indians 5; Marlins 2, Phillies 1 (Game 1); Marlins 8, Phillies 1 (Game 2); Red Sox 6, Rays 3; Braves 8, Nationals 4; Reds 10, Cardinals 5; White Sox 5, Tigers 2; Mariners 7, Diamondbacks 3; Royals 11, Pirates 0; Rangers 6, Athletics 3; Blue Jays 7, Mets 3; Padres 6, Giants 0 (Game 1); Padres 3, Giants 1 (Game 2).
