Carlos Zambrano pitches the 13th no-hitter in Cubs history, defeating the Astros, 5-0 at Miller Park.  Yes, Miller Park.  This was a designated home game for the Astros,  however, the game could not be played there due to Hurricane Ike. 

It is the only no-hitter (at the beginning of the 2017 season), in MLB history
to be played at a neutral site. 

Zambrano's no-hitter ended a long streak of Cubs games without a no-hitter.  Zambrano's no-hitter was 36 years and 12 days after Milt Pappas no-hitter on September 2, 1972.
