Though he didn’t get the complete game, Zach Davies and the Chicago Cubs threw a no-hitter on Thursday night in their 4-0 shutout win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Davies threw six innings in the win at Dodger Stadium before three relievers came in and carried the team the rest of the way for their first combined no-hitter in franchise history and 17th overall no-hitter.
It marked the first time the Dodgers have been no-hit since 2015, when Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta got them. They haven’t been on the wrong side of a combined no-hitter since 2012, when the Seattle Mariners pulled that feat off.
Pitcher Zach Davies got the Cubs going with six innings at Dodger Stadium. He used 94 pitches over that timespan, though, and had five walks as the Cubs took a 3-0 lead off two home runs — one from Javier Baez in the first and another from Wilson Contreras in the sixth.
Davis, though, has never thrown a complete game in his career. And, as he was nearing 100 pitches on the night, manager David Ross opted to replace him in the seventh with Ryan Tepera — who kept the no-hitter rolling after Jake Marisnick hit an RBI to put Chicago up 4-0.
Andrew Chafin then came in for the Cubs in the eighth inning and kept the combined game alive before Craig Kimbrel came in to finish it off in the ninth.
