Ted Lilly flirts with a no-hitter; The Cubs really, really like Milwaukee

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Ted Lilly almost sent the world spinning wildly off its axes this afternoon when he carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning.

See, his teammate Carlos Zambrano didn't give up any hits last night. No team has every thrown back-to-back no-hitters. The St. Louis Browns came close in 1917 by tossing no-no's on consecutive days. Nice try, guys.

Sadly, journeyman Mark Loretta drove a single into right field with two outs in the seventh inning. It's hard to be mad at Mark Loretta, but c'mon dude, we wanted to see some history.

Yes, no team has ever thrown back to back to hitters, but it would have been nice to add that Johnny Van Deermeer did throw back to back no hitters for the Cincinnati Reds
