History was made on Thursday night as Zach Davies and the Chicago Cubs' relievers pulled off the first combined no-hitter in franchise history. Davies along with Ryan Tepera, Andrew Chafin, and Craig Kimbrel silenced the Los Angeles Dodgers' bats en route to a huge 4-0 route in Dodgers Stadium.
This is the 17th time in the team's history that they've achieved a no-hitter but it's only the first time that multiple pitchers combined for such a feat (via MLB).

It wasn't the prettiest no-hitter in history but if you're a Cubs fan, you'll take it. The defending World Series champions had eight walks on the evening, each of which came from one of the four Cubs pitchers, but the Dodgers couldn't capitalize.
Davies, who started on the mound, threw for the first six hitless innings and was responsible for five of those eight walks. Ryan Tepera and Andrew Chafin stepped up in the seventh inning while Craig Kimbrel closed it out in the ninth.
This Cubs' impressive no-hitter marks the seventh no-hitter this season in the majors and now ties the record for most no-hitters in a single season since 1990. This also marks the second time the Cubs handed the Dodges a no-hitter in the last six years.
