List of Major League Baseball no-hitters
This is a list of no-hitters in Major League Baseball history. In addition, all no-hitters that were broken up in extra innings or were in shortened games are listed, although they are not currently considered official no-hitters. (Prior to 1991, a performance in which no hits were surrendered through nine innings or in a shortened game was considered an official no-hit game.) The names of those pitchers who threw a perfect game no-hitter are italicized. For combined no-hitters by two or more pitchers on the same team, each is listed with his number of innings pitched. Games which were part of a doubleheader are noted as either the first game or second game.
An official no-hit game occurs when a pitcher (or pitchers) allows no hits during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings thrown by the pitcher(s). In a no-hit game, a batter may still reach base via a walk, an error, a fielder's choice, an intentional walk, a hit by pitch, a passed ball or wild pitch on strike three, or catcher's interference. Also, due to these methods of reaching base, it is possible for a team to score runs without getting any hits.
While the vast majority of no-hitters are shutouts, no-hit teams have managed to score runs in their respective games 25 times. Five times a team has been no-hit and still won the game: two notable victories occurred when the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Houston Colt .45s (now called the Houston Astros) 1–0 on April 23, 1964 even though they were no-hit by Houston starter Ken Johnson, and the Detroit Tigers defeated the Baltimore Orioles 2–1 on April 30, 1967 even though they were no-hit by Baltimore starter Steve Barber and reliever Stu Miller. In another four games, the home team won despite gaining no hits through eight innings, but these are near no-hitters under the 1991 rule that nine no-hit innings must be completed in order for a no-hitter to be credited.
The pitcher who holds the record for the shortest time between no-hitters is Johnny Vander Meer, the only pitcher in history to throw no-hitters in consecutive starts, while playing for the Cincinnati Reds in 1938. Besides Vander Meer, Allie Reynolds (in 1951), Virgil Trucks (in 1952), Nolan Ryan (in 1973), and Max Scherzer (in 2015) are the only other major leaguers to throw two no-hitters in the same regular season. Jim Maloney technically threw two no-hitters in the 1965 season, but his first one ended after he allowed a home run in the top of the 11th inning. According to the rules interpretation of the time, this was considered a no-hitter. Later that season, Maloney once again took a no-hitter into extra innings, but this time he managed to preserve the no-hitter after the Reds scored in the top half of the tenth, becoming the first pitcher to throw a complete game extra inning no-hitter since Fred Toney in 1917.Roy Halladay threw two no-hitters in 2010: a perfect game during the regular season and a no-hitter in the 2010 National League Division Series. He is the only major leaguer to have thrown no-hitters in regular season and postseason play.
The first black pitcher to toss a no-hitter was Sam Jones who did it for the Chicago Cubs in 1955. The first Latin pitcher to throw one was San Francisco Giant Juan Marichal in 1963. The first Asian pitcher to throw one was Los Angeles Dodger Hideo Nomo in 1996.
Through September 13, 2020, there have been 305 no-hitters officially recognized by Major League Baseball, 262 of them in the modern era (starting in 1901, with the formation of the American League). Joe Borden's no-hitter in 1875 is also noted, but is not recognized by Major League Baseball (see note in the chart).[notes 1]

No-hitters by teamEdit
Italics indicate defunct team.
Regulation games in which a pitcher or staff pitches less than nine full innings, or in which a hit is allowed in extra innings, do not qualify as no-hitters. However, before the rules were tightened in 1991, such games did count as official no-hitters.
Regulation no-hit losses ending in the middle of the ninthEdit
Owing to the fact that the home team does not bat in the bottom of the ninth inning if they are leading after the top, a visiting pitcher (or pitchers) may complete a full game without allowing a hit but not be credited with an official no-hitter. If the visiting team allows a sufficient number of runs for the home team to win after the top of the ninth, whether by walks, errors, or anything else not involving hits, the pitcher(s) will not be credited with an official no-hitter because they only pitched eight innings (though such no-hitters were counted before 1991). This has happened only four times in major-league history.
- June 28, 2008 – Jered Weaver (6 inn.) and José Arredondo (2 inn.), Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 0, Los Angeles Dodgers 1
- July 1, 1990 – Andy Hawkins, New York Yankees 0 Chicago White Sox 4
- April 12, 1992 – Matt Young, Boston Red Sox 1 Cleveland Indians 2
Under certain circumstances, if a game cannot continue because of the weather, darkness, or any other reason, but if at least five innings have been completed, the game can count as an officially completed game. No-hitters pitched under such circumstances were counted before 1991, but no longer count as official no-hitters because nine innings were not completed. Pitchers listed in bold signify the pitcher was pitching a perfect game until the game was shortened. These games do not count as official perfect games.
In many instances, these games were shortened by regulations such as darkness (in an era before lights), rules to make doubleheaders seven innings (the second game, or both games, may be seven innings; still used in amateur and lower-level professional leagues) in order to avoid darkness from shortening games, or curfews, especially when teams needed to travel on regularly scheduled trains, buses, or flights (in the era before chartered flights). On rare occasions, the team that pitched a no-hitter also lost the game while pitching on the road - resulting in only 8 innings pitched because the opposing team did not bat in the bottom of the 9th inning.

As of 2011, first of only two perfect games at Dodger Stadium – the other was pitched by Dennis Martínez in 1991.
- On the same day, the Red Sox fired Pinky Higgins as their general manager. At 1,247 this was the lowest attended no-hitter until Lucas Giolito pitched one on August 25, 2020 with no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Milacki was hit on the hand by a ground ball in the sixth inning and had to leave the game after completing the inning.
- Hassey becomes the first catcher of two Major League perfect games. Fourth and final no-hitter in Montreal Expos history and the only perfect game. Dodgers pitcher Mike Morgan also took a perfect game into the sixth inning.

First no-hitter thrown by an NL team against an AL team. First official no-hitter against the Yankees in 44 years, a then-Major League record.

- Garza faced the minimum (only base-runner allowed was retired on a double play). Opposing starter Max Scherzer threw 5⅔ no-hit innings. The Rays are the first team since 1991 to pitch a no-hitter and be no-hit in the same season, and the first since 1956 to be involved in three no-hitters in one season. Game televised nationally on ESPN.
- Game 1 of the 2010 NLDS. Second no-hitter in postseason history, after Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

- First no-hitter ever thrown in San Diego's Petco Park. Lincecum was the losing pitcher in Bailey's no-hitter 11 days earlier.
- 5th no-hitter in Marlins history, and the first ever thrown at Marlins Park. The Marlins scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth on a wild pitch, with Álvarez standing in the on-deck circle. It was the first no-hitter to end in walk-off fashion since Cordova and Rincon combined for a 10-inning no-no in 1997. It was also the first no-hitter thrown on the last day of the regular season since Mike Witt's perfect game on September 30, 1984.
- Twenty-fourth no-hitter in Dodgers franchise history and the second thrown at Citizens Bank Park. Beckett fanned six and walked three on his 128 pitch outing. In the ninth inning, he struck out Chase Utley to secure the victory.
- Rockies' only base-runner came on a throwing error in the seventh. Kershaw became the first MLB pitcher ever with 15 strikeouts without allowing a single hit or walk.

- Lincecum's second no-hitter in less than a year. Lincecum became the second pitcher all-time, after Addie Joss, to no-hit the same team twice.
- Nationals rookie Steven Souza Jr., who came in as a defensive replacement in the top of the ninth inning, made a diving catch in left-center field to retire Christian Yelich for the final out. First no-hitter for the Nationals since the team moved to Washington, and the first by any Washington pitcher since Bobby Burke in 1931. This was the final game for both teams for the 2014 season, and it was the second year in a row in which a no-hitter had been thrown on the final day of the regular season. Henderson Álvarez, who had thrown Miami's no-hitter on the final day of the 2013 season, was the losing pitcher in this game.
- Seventeenth no-hitter in Giants franchise history, and the second no-hitter thrown at Citi Field. Heston was the 22nd rookie pitcher to throw a no-hitter. He did not walk a batter, but he hit three of them, joining Wiltse in 1908 and Brown in 1997 as no-hitter pitchers whose only base-runners came on hit batsmen. Heston's is the first such game to feature more than one hit by pitch.
- Scherzer was perfect through 8⅔ innings when he hit pinch-hitter José Tábata to allow the Pirates' only base-runner of the game. Fourth no-hitter pitcher after Wiltse, Brown, and Heston to only allow their base-runners on hit batsmen, and the second after Wiltse to lose a perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning on a hit batsman. Scherzer threw a one-hitter, having been perfect for 6 innings, in his previous start, and was perfect through 5 in his next start after this no-hitter.
- Fifth pitcher, after Blue, Witt, Mercker, and Millwood, to pitch a complete game no-hitter as well as contribute to a combined no-hitter. Kris Bryant flew out to Odubel Herrera, who tripped after losing the ball in the sun, on a full count for the final out. This was also the first time that the Cubs were no-hit since Sandy Koufax's perfect game in 1965, and the first no-hitter thrown at Wrigley Field since 1972. Hamels' last start with the Phillies as he was traded to the Texas Rangers six days later.
- Second Japanese pitcher to throw a Major League no-hitter, after Hideo Nomo. First no-hitter in an American League game since teammate Félix Hernández's perfect game almost exactly three years prior, breaking a string of 12 straight NL no-hitters.
- Eleventh no-hitter in Astros history, and the first no-hitter for the Astros as an American League team. This was also the first complete-game no-hitter by an Astros pitcher since Darryl Kile did it in 1993.
- Dodgers no-hit for the second time in 9 days; this is the shortest interval since the 1923 Philadelphia Athletics and the first time a team were no-hit twice in one calendar month since the 1971 Cincinnati Reds.
- Second game of a doubleheader. Scherzer's second no-hitter of the season; both of which also featured no walks. Scherzer was perfect through 5 innings before an error by 3B Yunel Escobar. Scherzer's 17 strikeouts tied Nolan Ryan's record for most in a no-hitter and included 9 straight. Second highest game score ever for a nine-inning game, with 104, following Kerry Wood's 1998 one-hit complete-game shutout. Scherzer becomes the fifth pitcher to throw two no-hitters in the same season.
- Fifteenth no-hitter in Cubs history. Most run support in a no-hitter since 1884. First regular season no-hitter against the Reds since 1971. Fourth no-hitter thrown by a reigning Cy Young Award winner.

- Twelfth no-hitter in Athletics history and the first no-hitter since Dallas Braden's perfect game in 2010. Red Sox no-hit for the first time since 1993. Red Sox came into the game with a record of 17-2, the best winning percentage by a team who had a no-hitter thrown against them in history. First time since 1988 that a no-hitter was thrown against that season's World Series champions.
- Game played in Monterrey, Mexico. First no-hitter thrown outside the United States or Canada. Second no-hitter thrown at a neutral site. Buehler's third career start.
- Sixth no-hitter in Mariners history. Second no-hitter thrown by a Canadian pitcher, first since 1945 (Dick Fowler), and first by a Canadian pitcher in Canada. Third different country in which a no-hitter was thrown in 2018.
- Thirteenth no-hitter in Athletics history. Mike Fiers becomes the 35th pitcher in MLB history to throw two no-hitters.
- Eleventh no-hitter and the second combined no-hitter in Angels history. Largest run differential in a no-hitter by an AL team since 1938. In their first home games since his death on July 1st, the Angels were honoring pitcher Tyler Skaggs, having every team member wear his jersey. First no-hitter involving the use of an opener.
- Twelfth no-hitter and the second combined no-hitter in Astros history. First start by Sanchez since being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays along with Biagini. Sanchez came into the game without a win in his last 17 starts and with a 6.07 ERA, worst among all starting pitchers. Mariners are the first team to have two combined no-hitters against them in one season.
- Thirteenth no-hitter in Astros history. Retired the last twenty-six batters in a row after a first-inning walk. Verlander became the third pitcher after Addie Joss and Tim Lincecum to no-hit the same opponent twice, and the first to do so on the road. He also became the sixth pitcher in MLB history to throw three career no-hitters. Astros scored the only runs of the game on Abraham Toro's two-run home run with two outs in the top of the ninth inning.
- Nineteenth no-hitter in White Sox history. Giolito struck out 13, the most ever in a White Sox no-hitter, and allowed only one base-runner, a four-pitch walk to Erik Gonzalez in the fourth inning. Took place with no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Mills' first complete game and 15th career start, the fewest by a Cubs pitcher before throwing a no-hitter since 1972. With Lucas Giolito 19 days earlier, this was the first time both Chicago teams threw a no-hitter in the same season. Second no-hitter at Miller Park; the first was also by a Cubs pitcher, Carlos Zambrano in 2008. Took place with no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
