5/11 A little Cubs no-no trivia
Ted Lilly had a no-hitter through 5 1/3 innings Monday. According to Elias Sports Bureau, each of the last three times a Cubs starting pitcher has taken a no-no into at least the sixth inning, the team has lost the game. Randy Wells had a no-hitter for 6 2/3 innings against the Braves last June in an extra-inning victory for Atlanta. Rich Harden held the Phillies hitless for 5 2/3 innings last August, before Philadelphia won in extra innings.
