What are the most recent no-hitters in Chicago Cubs history?

Almost eight years to the day of Jake Arrieta's second no-hitter in an 11-start span, let's look back at the most recent Cubs hurlers who made baseball history.

Zach Davis, three relievers, combine to no-hit the Dodgers in 2021

It wasn't pretty. Zach Davies, Ryan Tepera, Andrew Chafin and Craig Kimbrel combined to allow eight baserunners - the most ever in a Cubs no-hitter - but at the end of the day, there was a '0' in the hits column, giving Chicago its first combined no-no and the 17th in franchise history.

To be frank, I'd totally forgotten this happened before I started digging into Cubs no-hitters over the weekend. I remembered every other no-no on this list pretty vividly (even Mills, shockingly enough) but maybe because I've blocked Davies' Cubs tenure from my mind entirely given how it went, this one didn't make the cut.

Marking the second Cubs no-hitter at Dodger Stadium in the last decade, this game saw Davies walk five over six hitless frames before turning things over to the trio of relievers who, at the time, had no idea there was a no-hitter intact.

If nothing else, this is a bright spot in Davies' disappointing time in a Cubs uniform (a 5.78 ERA in 32 starts in 2021) - and one that, as I said, holds a unique place in team history as the only combined no-hitter in the nearly 150 years the franchise has existed.
