    Except he got pulled with two outs in the sixth. He's thrown more than 100 pitches.

    No-hitter still alive, tho.

    Prior: 5 2/3 hitless
    Cubs' pen: 2/3 hitless

    Well, their relievers kept it longer than I thought they would.

    As fast as Cedeno and Pierre are, I think one of them should have made that play. But they are Cubs.

    And they're very good at it.

    So if the game ended with no hits, would papers play it as a no-hitter? Because it's not counted anymore.

    They played it that way when the Astros did it to the Yankees a couple of years ago. Houston used something like four or five pitchers that night.

    the victimized team is no-hitted. but no one gets credit for pitching a no-no, right?

    The Cubs haven't thrown a no-hitter since 1972 and haven't been no-hit since Koufax did it in 1966.

    The papers in Pittsburgh treated it like one when Francisco Cordova and Ricardo Rincon combined to no-hit the Astros in '97. I was in the stands for that one. Actually had a decent crowd because it was a fireworks night.

    Not only is Prior not getting a chance to throw a no-hitter but they're going to lose the game too.

    Right. It still goes down as a no-hitter, but no one pitcher can take credit for it.

    There have been nine combined no-hitters in history. How many can y'all name (no cheating)?

    I'll start you off with the first one: Babe Ruth and Ernie Shore, 6/23/1917 (I already looked this shit up, so I discount myself.)
