Carlos Zambrano was the last Cub Pitcher to throw a no hitter. He was two batters away from a perfect game. It was a 5-0 win on September 14, 2008 against Houston but the game relocated to Milwaukee due to Houston getting hit hard by Hurricane Ike. Milwaukee's Miller Park was chosen in part because of it being a Domed Stadium while there were heavy rains across the US. Milt Pappas pitched the next to last no hitter for the Chicago Cubs on September 2, 1972 an 8-0 win against San Diego.

There is only one call for a balk. When a pitcher is in the stretch and a runner or runners are on base, the pitcher must pause before throwing to homeplate. There can also be a balk called on the pitcher if he makes a move to throw out someone at first base, but doesn't actually throw the ball. (No fake throws to first allowed!) The last reason for a balk to be called is if a pitcher begins to move his front leg towards homeplate, but does not throw the ball to home. (Or simply pitch to the batter). A balk results in baserunners advancing one base.
