Live-Blogging Zambrano’s No-Hitter!

Eighth inning and a no-hitter for Zambrano! This is dangerous territory! He gets the first out with a sinking fly ball to right. Whew, that was close! Now a pop-up and Z takes it himself. Seven game lead for the Cubs after the Brewers get swept by the Phillies. Crowd on their feet, two strikes! Come on! He got him! Eight no-hit innings!

How cruelly ironic that the Cubs are playing to a mostly home crowd at the Brewers stadium while Milwaukee is getting crushed in Philadelphia. Thanks for the use of the park, Brew Crew. Here we go, Cubs go down and it’s the bottom of the ninth! Three tense outs to go!

There’s one quick out, a grounder to Theriot! Two outs! Another grounder! Here we go! Two strikes! Yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woo hoo! Z has done it! Wow, that was awesome. Never thought I would see that, I guess it’s the first since 1972! Well, that’s a slice of history for you, live, right here. I guarantee that I will not be doing that when the Cubs win the playoffs or World Series. I will be out of my body somewhere, floating in a bubble, pouring Cubs Old Style over my head.
