Became the first major league pitcher ever to finish a season with 20-straight quality starts ... the run, which began June 21, also surpassed the previous Cubs mark of 17-consecutive quality starts by Lon Warneke in 1933. w Held opponents to a .150 average (76-for-505), a .200 on-base percentage and a .210 slugging mark in his final 20 starts. w Hit as many home runs (2) as he allowed (2) during this stretch.

Finished the regular season with a career-high 22.0-inning scoreless streak dating to September 22 vs. the Brewers. Did not allow a run in his final 40.2 innings at Wrigley Field, the longest scoreless stretch for any pitcher since the park opened in 1914. Logged four complete games and three shutouts ... the four complete games were the most by a Cub since Kerry Wood had four in 2003 ... the three shutouts were most by a Cub since Greg Maddux had four in 1992. Went 13-1 with a 1.60 ERA (22 ER/124.0 IP) in 18 road starts ... the 13 road wins and 1.60 ERA both led the majors. w His .929 road winning percentage is the best single-season mark in franchise history (min. 15 starts). w His 13 road victories are the most by a Cub in a single season since Larry Jackson went 14-5 in 1964.The no-hit effort capped an August in which he was named N.L. Pitcher of the Month, as he finished 6-0 with a microscopic 0.43 ERA (2 ER/42.1 IP) in six starts … Elias reports he was the first pitcher to go 6-0 in six starts with an ERA below 0.75 in a month since the White Sox Jim Kaat was 6-0 with a 0.35 ERA in September of 1974. Carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning twice, and a major-league best five times since the start of 2014. Threw at least 8.0 innings and allowed no more than one earned run in five-straight starts starting with his no-hitter through September 22 … Elias points out that the previous major league pitcher to turn that trick was Roger Clemens in 1997, and the previous to do so that late in the season was Orel Hershiser back in 1988. In four road starts from June 21-July 19, tossed 7.0 or more innings with at least seven strikeouts while allowing no more than run in each outing ... in the last 25 years, the only others to turn that trick are Roger Clemens in 1997, Ervin Santana in 2008 and R.A. Dickey in 2012. Spun his second career complete game shutout, June 21 in Minnesota ... allowed four hits, walked none and struck out seven while throwing a career-high 122 pitches. w Became the first Cubs pitcher on the road to shut out an opponent on four or fewer hits while striking out at least seven batters and not issuing a walk since Rick Sutcliffe against the Mets at Shea Stadium, September 8, 1984. Tossed 7.0-shutout frames in his season debut April 8 vs. St. Louis ... was the ninth time in his career he has shut out the opponent in at least 7.0 innings.

Tossed 8.0 innings May 12 vs. New York (N.L.) … recorded his fifth-career double-digit strikeout game, fanning 10 batters, as the Cubs won, 6-1 … faced the minimum through 7.0 innings thanks to two double plays. May 17 vs. Pittsburgh, became the first Cubs pitcher since Jeff Samardzija in May of 2013 to take a loss despite allowing one or no runs in at least 7.0 innings of work. July 12 vs. White Sox, tossed a two-hit complete game effort and hit his first career homer, a solo shot ... became the second pitcher ever to homer in a complete game interleague win, joining the Braves Denny Neagle in 1997 vs. the Tigers. w Finished the game by striking out the side in the ninth ... the previous pitcher to allow fewer than three hits and strike out the side in a perfect ninth inning was Clayton Kershaw in 2011 against the Tigers. Named N.L. Pitcher of the Month for September ... became the first N.L. pitcher to win the award in consecutive months since Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers won in June and July of 2014 en route to the Cy Young. Spun his third shutout of the campaign, September 22 vs. Milwaukee ... allowed three hits, walked one and struck out 11. Tossed a five-hit shutout and struck out 11 in a 4-0 Wildcard win at Pittsburgh, October 7 ... became the sixth pitcher in major league history to toss a shutout while allowing five or fewer hits while striking out at least 10 in their first career post-season appearance. w Was the first to turn the trick since San Francisco's Tim Lincecum, October 7, 2010 (NLDS Gm. 1 vs. Atlanta).
