Darvish takes no-hitter into 7th, Cubs beat Brewers 4-2

CHICAGO (AP) Yu Darvish knew his pitch count was climbing, but he wasn't exactly showing signs of fatigue, either.

Darvish took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his third straight dominant start, and the major league-leading Chicago Cubs defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Thursday night.

Darvish allowed just one hit - Justin Smoak's towering solo homer to right field with one out in the seventh inning on his 98th pitch - before Casey Sadler relieved to start the eighth. The 33-year-old right-hander from Japan struck out 11 and threw 104 pitches.
