EDIT
9/14/08: Carlos Zambrano's No-Hitter
September 14, 2008: Chicago Cubs 5 at Houston Astros 0, F -- Carlos Zambrano, sidelined by a sore arm, was making his first start in 12 days. But instead of taking the mound in Houston, where the game was originally scheduled, the big righty found himself on the hill in Milwaukee. It was a rare-neutral site MLB game, made necessary by Hurricane Ike, which had hit the Houston area days before. And from the first pitch to the last, the big right-hander consistently hit 99 mph with his fastball, and dominated a previously red-hot Astros lineup from start to finish in a remarkable 110-pitch outing. He struck out a season-high 10 and walked just one. Only two balls left the infield all night, and there were no close calls or spectacular plays needed to save him. Amazingly, Zambrano said he was thinking of a no-hitter from the start, knowing he had the stuff to get it done. Entering the ninth having thrown only 99 pitches, Zambrano was still on fire. When he got Darin Erstad to chase a split-finger pitch for strike three, the ballpark erupted into a celebratory frenzy. It was the Big Z's first no-hitter, and the first by a Cubs pitcher in 36 years, and the first at a neutral site, in front of a very pro-Cubs crowd of 23,441 at Miller Park.moreless
