Can't Erstad or someone lay a friggin bunt down for a hit or something? Jeez. Talk about having an icy cold offense.

A single club has never done it but there has been at least one case of back to back no-hitters, one by each team.

St. Louis and San Francisco did it to each other in consecutive games.

I submit the Cubs should move to Miller Park permanently.

No. In 1968, I think, a team that was no-hit one day came back against the same team the next day and pitched a no-hitter. That was the only time in modern major league baseball that any team has been involved in consective no-hitters.

The fact that Lilly is no-hitting the Astros, who haven't had a hit since Thursday, speaks more to the Astros than the Cubs pitching. And that diminishes the Zambrano no-hitter. Not that it matters, and Cubs fans will have something to remember when they don't get to watch their team in thei World Series.

I watched the bottom half of the 3rd, where Erstad struck out in three pitches:

a breaking ball over the outer half,
a fastball above his eyes, and
a ball in the dirt.

Whoever followed him in the order struck out as well, except Lilly threw the ball high and away to K the second batter.

The pitcher came up, and worked the count to 3-2 before grounding out to third.


I'm reminded of how much Erstad sucks, and how much I HATE lazy, stupid batters that can't lay off balls above their heads, or junk in the dirt. You know, guys like Erstad and The Rich Man's Rob Mackowiac.


In either case, National League baseball is boring with the 3 automatic outs supplied by the pitcher trying to hit.

The Astros have no will to play in this series, it's pretty sad.

They had Richard Justice on ESPN Outside the Lines and he said the team just does not care.

They chose to wear road uniforms (not by accident).

They chose to be in the road dugout (not by accident).

They all have much bigger problems at home, yet are playing a "HOME" game thousands of miles away.

You know you're team has a cruddy offense when you're being no-hit by Ted Lilly. Carlos Zambrano is one thing, he's got great stuff. But Ted Lilly? This is almost like Buehrle's no-no.

But RF did boot it after it dropped, he had a definite chance to throw him out at first. I'm scoring it E-9.

At least that's what people here think.. :rolleyes:

In 1969, the Cubs tanked after Kenny Holtzman's August no-hitter. In 1991, the White Sox tanked after Wilson Alvarez came up from the minors and no-hit Baltimore. Even in 1967, Joe Horlen's no-hitter was the highlight of a September that should have propelled them to the World Series.

In 1986, Mike Scott pitched a no-hitter to clinch the NL West for the Astros. The Astros didn't get to the World Series.

There is no correlation between pitching no-hitters and winning the World Series. There is no correlation between pitching late-season no-hitters and getting to the World Series.

I see Lilly has given up a hit while I was typing this. It isn't like he was going to pitch a complete game anyway.

Buehrle got his no-hitter against a hard hitting Rangers team. And his career stats are much better than Lilly's.

I do agree Mark is not really the type of pitcher one would expect to throw a no-no but comparing him to Lilly is unfair.

How about the White Sox's own Joe Cowley. When he pitched his no-hitter, he never won another game in the majors...

You do realize that the Astros came into the series winners of 14 of their last 15 games...I'm pretty sure they had to score some runs along the way.
