On April 23, 1964, Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt . 45s became the first pitcher to throw a nine-inning no-hitter and lose. In fact, he is still the only individual to throw an official (nine-inning) no-hitter and lose.
The most recent major league no-hitter was thrown by Cristian Javier, Héctor Neris and Ryan Pressly of the Houston Astros against the New York Yankees on June 25, 2022.
Here’s the list, starting with the pitcher whose no-hitter total stands alone – Nolan Ryan, who threw seven.- Nolan Ryan (7) May 1, 1991 TEX vs.
In the majority of cases, a no-hitter is also recorded as a shutout if it is performed by a single pitcher pitching a complete game. If a no-hitter is achieved with more than one pitcher, no pitcher is awarded a shutout or a no-hitter, but a team shutout and no-hitter is still acknowledged.
Don’t Rub the Mark After a Hit by Pitch
Either way, as a batter you don’t rub the spot. You can’t show weakness as it just makes the pitcher that much tougher now that he’s seen that he can affect the other team.
Hitting for the cycle is by no means common, but it isn’t as rare as the other feats on this list, as 31 players have done so since 2005, with Scott Hairston representing the lone cycle in 2012 after he hit for it in April against the Colorado Rockies.
They want to avoid eye contact with their manager, hitting coach or other players because they don’t want to feel more embarrassed than they’re already feeling. They want to stare at a pitcher to deliver a message through eye contact, “I will hit it next time”.

The perfect game — 27 up, 27 down — is the rarest of baseball feats. There have been only 23 of them in major league history, with the first two coming in 1880.
One such rarity is the immaculate inning. You’ve probably heard of it – an immaculate inning is when a pitcher strikes out all three batters in an inning, on three pitches each. The immaculate inning used to be very rare – there were none from 1929-52. But in 2019, there have been seven.
Triple plays are rare for several reasons. First off, they can occur only when the batting team has at least two men on base with nobody out. Then, in those cases, the batting team typically has to make a baserunning blunder to aid the defending team.
How rare is a triple? Around 2% or one in fifty hits are triples. Teams average around eight and a half hits per game.
Through 2013, Maddox is still the youngest pitcher to throw a no-hitter in the majors.

On the same day that Rickey Henderson broke Lou Brock’s all-time steals record, Nolan Ryan made history as well, recording his major league record seventh no-hitter. On May 1, 1991, at the age of 44, Ryan became the oldest player to register a no-hitter.
The page ranks the teams by no-hitters thrown and has links to view all of a particular team’s no-nos. The Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers sit far ahead of all other teams, and as of April 9, 2021, all current franchises now have one.
If someone told you that a team recorded no hits in a baseball game, you would probably – and reasonably – assume that team lost said game. Well, on June 28, 2008, the Dodgers beat that Angels despite not recording a single hit in the game.
The 2021 MLB season made history with a record nine no-hitters. The 2022 season has three no-hit games in just over three months. The Astros threw the most recent no-hitter, which occurred Saturday, June 25.Most recent no-hitters.

Theoretically, a pitcher could lose a perfect game without throwing a pitch in the 10th. The extra-inning runner (EIR) could immediately steal 3rd and home or the pitcher could throw the ball away trying to check the runner.
Prior to Ryan throwing his 5th no-hitter in late September of 1981, no pitcher had thrown more than Sandy Koufax’s four–a record that at the time seemed exceedingly unlikely to ever fall.
A save (abbreviated SV or S) is a statistic awarded to a relief pitcher, often called a closer, who enters the game under certain conditions and maintains his team’s lead until the end of the game. The save rule was first adopted for the 1969 season and amended for the 1974 and 1975 seasons.
In 2019, 268 games ended in a shutout, or roughly 11% of all games. Since Major League Baseball expanded to 30 teams in 1998, there have been anywhere from 193 to 353 shutouts per season (excluding 2020), or anywhere from 7.9% to 14.5% of all games ended in a shutout.
