People always talk about guys having no-hit potential yet somehow they never get it. That's not a knock...just shows how hard it really is.

Allows 1 walk and gets 10 strikeouts in a truly dominating performance under the strangest of circumstances. This was a Cubs/Astros game played in Milwaukee because of Hurricane Ike. A crazy amount of Cubs fans made the trip and turned it into a Cubs home game.
