Chicago Cubs have gone longest since being no-hit

The San Diego Padres, Colorado Rockies and Philadelphia Phillies have had no-hitters pitched against them this baseball season. Tim Lincecum of the Giants no-hit the Padres, and Los Angeles Dodgers teammates Josh Beckett and Clayton Kershaw no-hit the Phillies and Rockies, respectively.
Twelve of the 30 major-league teams have been no-hit since 2012.
The Chicago Cubs have not been no-hit since Sept. 10, 1965, the longest no-hitter "drought" in the big leagues, according to The Dodgers' Sandy Koufax pitched a perfect game against the Cubs that day.
The Cincinnati Reds have the second-longest no no-hitter streak. The Reds haven't been victimized since manager Sparky Anderson's crew was no-hit by the Phillies' Rick Wise on June 23, 1971.
