10/9 No-hitter in Mesa, AZ

It won’t get the headlines that Roy Halladay’s no-hitter did in the NLDS, but on Saturday at Fitch Park in Mesa, five Cubs Minor League pitchers combined for a no-no against the Angels in an Instructional League game. Aaron Kurcz, Dustin Fitzgerald, Casey Harman, Robinson Lopez and Kevin Rhoderick held the Angels hitless. Trouble is, the Cubs couldn’t muster much either and the game ended in a scoreless tie.
