7/4 Cubs' near no-no's

Randy Wells had a no-hitter through six innings Saturday and Ted Lilly went eight innings without giving up a hit against the White Sox on June 13. According to Elias Sports Bureau, it’s the first time since 2004 that two Cubs starting pitchers reached the seventh inning without giving up a hit in games played at Wrigley Field in the same season. Matt Clement went 6 1/3 innings without allowing a hit against the Mets on April 25, 2004, (Karim Garcia broke it up with a home run) and Carlos Zambrano also went 6 1/3 innings without giving up a  hit against the Brewers on Aug, 23, 2004 (broken up by a Geoff Jenkins double).
