A Year Ago Today: The Carlos Zambrano No-Hitter

With the way the Cubs season has gone it's time to forget 2009 for a few minutes and remember Big Z's no hitter. 365 days ago Z came off the DL to start a game against the Houston Astros in Milwaukee. The game was in Miller Park because Houston was playing host to a hurricane.

Z answered any and all questions about his health for one night. He finished the game with a line of 9IP 0H 0R 0ER 1BB 10K. He dazzled the Astros hitters and had his sinker working like it never has been before. Complete MLB coverage is here, and the video of every out here.

Take five minutes and enjoy the greatest moment in the career of one of the best Cubs pitchers ever, and easily the best Cubs pitcher most of us will ever see. With any luck we will get to see Big Z toss another no-hitter or two before he retires.
