Cubs Trivia:

The Cubs have the longest active streak among Major League franchises without being no-hit. Who was the last pitcher to throw a no-hitter against the Cubs?

Koufax is sticking in my head And if that's correct, I'd have to say sometime before 1967 for the time.

I dont know the exact date, but I'm almost certain it was in 1965

I believe it was Koufax's perfect game. It was arguably the greatest two-sided pitching game of all time. Combined totals for both teams were: 1 hit, 2 baserunners, and 1 run.

Spin-off to original question:
Who was on the mound for the Cubs? Threw a 1 hitter and I dont believe that hit had anything to do with the run.

Bob Hendley was the Cubs pitcher. The lone hit was a pop fly that barely reached the outfield grass behind first. The run scored on a walk (on a close pitch), a sacrifice (bobbled by Hendley), a steal of third, and a throwing error by the catcher on the steal. The Dodgers scored without a hit and without an official at-bat.
