Unheralded Alec Mills completed the most incredible pitching feat of a bizarre season by pitching a no-hitter as the Chicago Cubs rolled to a 12-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday at Miller Park.
Mills, 28, retired the final seven batters he faced. He opened the ninth by getting Jacob Nottingham to foul out to first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Tyrone Taylor struck out.
Mills completed the no-hit bid by getting Jace Peterson to ground to shortstop Javier Baez, ignited a wild celebration after he threw the 16th no-hitter in franchise history and the first since Jake Arrieta in 2016 in Cincinnati.
Mills struck out five and walked three while throwing a season-high 114 pitches.
