The Blue Jays have just one no-hitter over the club’s 37-year history.

Dave Stieb, the king of late-inning near-misses, finally got his no-no (and the Blue Jays’ first) during the 1990 season on the road against the Cleveland Indians.

On August 8, 2010, Brandon Morrow came within one out of throwing the Jays’ second no-hitter, but the Tampa Bay Rays’ Evan Longoria tagged him for a two-out, ninth-inning single.

Here is the Blue Jays’ one no-hitter:

1 Dave Stieb
