by Bob Timmermann

The last guy to throw a no-hitter (complete games of nine innings or more) for:

I remember the Nomo no-no in Coors; I watched it at home. It was a bizarre evening, really. The ball wasn't carrying at all; heavy air or something. I know, the Dodgers scored nine times but eleven of their fourteen hits were singles. It was an odd night and a happy one for Hideo.

That Mets' lack of no-hitters is amazing. Consider the pitchers they had in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Seaver, Holzmann, Matlack, Ryan (although it was before Nolan became Nolan Ryan); I'd have thought one of those guys would have done it. And didn't David Cone pitch for them for a while in the 1980s? Maybe Pedro can get them off the schneid.

I think you meant Ken Holtzman there.

He never pitched for the Mets. He pitched for the Yankees and threw two no-hitters with the Cubs.

I watched three of these live on TV (A's, Dbacks, Phillies), and one in person (Orioles).

Maybe he meant Koosman.

Hey Bob, maybe you should switch that link for Millwood's to somethin like this:

That was the last ballgame I have ever talked myself out of bringing a camera to. It was incredible how right around the sixth inning the entire stadium started to buzz when we saw the "0 H" still up on the scoreboard, and when Bonds went down in the seventh (?) we knew we were about to see something special. I agree it was definitely a personal "pantheon" moment, probably for all 40,000+ there, especially since he could easily have bunted one into the shift and (this is back when Bonds still had knees) beaten it out Ben Davis style. Unfortunately my sister had already come and gone to pick up her giveaway Phanatic bank, as it was his birthday that day and thus the huge crowd, but she was more than a little upset to find out what she had missed. Truly an unforgettable experience that I hope everybody else is lucky enough to have at some point.

How many others of those no-hitters have been against a defending league champion Bob?

The links have been fixed. I think I messed up six of them.

I had a lot of windows open.

The Astros no-hitter was against a defending divisional champ.
The DBacks perfect game was against a defending divisional champ.

Browning threw a perfect game against the team that would go on to win the World Series.

2 - The Mets have had some astronomical number of one-hitters though, the most painful of which was a 19 strikeout game by Cone in 1992 vs my very own Phillies. And don't forget ex-Met Dwight Gooden's no-no for the Yankees in '96.

For everyone's perusal:

A team that would go on to win the World Series, but whose best hitter was Orel Hershiser (well, not really, but . . .). You should add "perfect game" to Browning's line.

Mr. Browning is now perfect.

Was there a point to the question? Was there a question?

But I was there when the Astros 6 no-hit the Yanks.

My 2 favorite teams playing each other, so it was grand and it sucked, all at the same time.

BTW: How about that performance from Taylor Buchholz tonight, eh?!

Grr, you're welcome rbs10025, and thanks for that one decent half-season from Wags.

4 of the pitchers on this list were on the 2004 Phillies' 40-man. Does any team top that Bob?

I'm just making these lists so you can I show 'em off before they go on the sidebar.

Ken, you're right. I meant Koosman. Thanks.

I was only in grade school at the time of Nomo's no-no. My mom made me go to sleep in the 6th inning or thereabout. I was very disappointed.

Quality at bats by Kent and Ethier. That should allow Capuano to go at least 7 innings now.

Wrong thread :)

How many pitchers have a thrown a no hitter where the opponent scored 2 or more runs?

2006-09-06 18:35:47
18.   Bob Timmermann
In the majors, no one has thrown a no-hitter (that officially qualifies as one) and given up more than two runs.

Ed Seward of Philadelphia (AA) in 1888 - 12-2
Ben Sanders of Louisville (NL) in 1902 - 6-2
Steve Barber and Stu Miller of Baltimore (AL) in 1967 - 1-2 loss.

What year had the most no hitters? There have already been two this year, but I'm sure we're probably a still a few away from the record.

20.   confucius
In 1969 5 no hitters were thrown. That's the most.
