Chicago Cubs right-hander Alec Mills pitched his first career no-hitter in Sunday's 12-0 victory over the host Milwaukee Brewers.

The 28-year-old Mills (5-3) struck out five and walked three in a 114-pitch effort during his 15th career start.

The no-hitter is the 16th in Cubs' history and the first since Jake Arrieta turned the trick against the Cincinnati Reds on April 21, 2016.

"It's kind of crazy," Mills said. "I don't even know how to celebrate. Just something that all came together today. Obviously, a memory I will have forever."

His pitch count was already at a career-high 103 through eight innings before he was allowed to pitch the ninth. He retired Jacob Nottingham on a foul pop to first baseman Anthony Rizzo, struck out Tyrone Taylor and induced Jace Peterson to ground out to shortstop Javier Baez to end it.

The contest also represented Mills' first major league complete game and shutout.
