On June 7 2001 — The Chicago Cubs complete a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, winning 4 – 3 and posting their 15th victory in 16 games. Cubs fans haven’t seen that since 1945. Matt Morris pitches a no-hitter into the 7th inning before Matt Stairs’ two-out double opens the door for Chicago. Rondell White’s single in the 10th drives home Sammy Sosa with the winning run. After the victory, the Cubs take a five-game lead over St. Louis in the NL Central Division.
