MILWAUKEE (AP) — Chicago Cubs pitcher Alec Mills has completed six hitless innings against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Mills has walked two Sunday and hasn't let a runner past first base. He's struck out four and thrown 72 pitches.

The 28-year-old right-hander has been rounding into form for Chicago. He pitched six shutout innings in his previous start Tuesday against Cincinnati. He entered Sunday 4-3 with a 4.74 ERA this season.

The Cubs led 9-0 after scoring five unearned runs in the fourth. Neither team had a hit through three innings.

Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano has thrown the only no-hitter at Miller Park, against the Houston Astros on Sept. 14, 2008. The Cubs played the Astros in Milwaukee because of damage in the Houston area from Hurricane Ike.

Chicago's last no-hitter was thrown by Jake Arrieta on April 21, 2016 against the Reds.
