…a combined no hitter in LA (Cubs win).

June 25, 2021

from the article:

“It’s the seventh no-hitter in baseball this season, the most ever before July 1 and tied for the most in a season since 1900, when the modern era began.

The twist on Thursday night’s no-hitter is that the three relievers who finished the game, after starter Zach Davies came out after six innings, didn’t know the Dodgers were hitless until after they pitched.

“The whole bullpen had no idea,” lefty Andrew Chafin said afterward. “It was completely oblivious. In our defense, from that bullpen, our perspective on the field, all we can see is like batting averages and the count and stuff like that.”

Is anyone watching the playoffs in basketball, hockey or both? Both have been pretty exciting.

Other than that, I’m just treading water until training camp starts in late July as things stay quiet with our beloved Bears.
