Baseball is incredible. Alec Mills wasn’t recruited to the University of Tennessee at Martin. He walked by practice one day and told the coach he was good enough to pitch on the team. A tryout followed. 22nd round pick. Today, he threw a no-hitter for the @Cubs
The second no-hitter of 2020 belongs to Alec Mills.
Alec Mills, a 22nd-round pick out of Tennessee-Martin who is 28 years old and hasn't spent a full season in the major leagues, just threw the 16th no-hitter in Chicago Cubs history by shutting down the Milwaukee Brewers.
ALEC MILLS THROWS A NO-HITTER 🚨
9/14/08 – Carlos Zambrano throws the first no-hitter in Miller Park history.
9/13/20 – Alec Mills throws the second no-hitter in Miller Park history.
Congratulations to Alec Mills throwing a No Hitter! The second Cubs no hitter at Miller Park.... well done Alec!
Going from a Bears comeback straight to an Alec Mills’ no-hitter
This is the first time that the @Cubs
(Alec Mills) and @WhiteSox (Lucas Giolito) both threw no-hitters in the same season. https://t.co/WV2MQECClV
Alec Mills a little emotional when told Jason Heyward said he wasn't coming out of the blowout game until if/when he gave up a hit. Heyward a multiple gold glove winner.
🚨 Alec Mills throws a no-hitter! 🚨

Alec Mills, No Hitter 🍾
Your 2020 no-hitters so far:
Lucas Giolito, White Sox
Alec Mills, Cubs
FIRST TIME that the Cubs and White Sox have each thrown one in a single season. The White Sox began in 1901.
Alec Mills (who?) just threw a no-hitter 🙌
Former walk-on at Tennessee Martin
Hasn't throw a complete game since A-ball in the minor leagues
The odds of the Cubs comeback last night, the Bears comeback today, and an Alec Mills no-hitter all happening consecutively are absolutely wild lmao
HE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ALEC MILLS NO HITTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alec Mills just threw a No-Hitter. What a Sunday.
David Ross, who caught Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter in 2016, on watching Alec Mills: “Just a proud parent moment. That’s how you feel. You see the adversity somebody’s been through. To work hard, get an opportunity and make the most of it is really rewarding from my seat.”
What a day for Chicago sports.
Bears rally behind Mitch. Cubs get no-hitter from Alec Mills. White Sox keep rolling as one of baseball's best stories.
When was last time the Bears, Cubs and White Sox all were in first place on the same day? Did I miss this bit of trivia @ckamka
Alec Mills of the @Cubs
threw a no-hitter today despite getting only 5 swings and misses all game.
Since pitches were first tracked in 1988, that ties the fewest whiffs in a no-hitter - Dallas Braden also had 5 in his 2010 perfect game.
Here is today’s Re-Kap of the Cubs 12-0 smashing of the Brewers in Milwaukee. The big story: Alec Mills throwing a no hitter!
Alec Mills #Cubs, lanza el segundo juego sin hit ni carreras en esta temporada.
Congrats to Alec Mills, who pitched for us in 2016.
