George County alum Justin Steele part of Iowa Cubs no-hitter

George County alum Justin Steele was a part of history on Sunday, leading the charge in a seven-inning combined no-hitter for the Iowa Cubs.

The former Rebel struck out five and walked two in three-and-a-two-third innings of work as a part of a rehab assignment as he continues to get stretched back into a starter’s workload as the Chicago Cubs began the process of being sellers at the trade deadline.

As a reliever this season, Steele is 2-0 with a 2.03 ERA and 21 strikeouts across 13-and-a-third innings of work.
