No-hitters vs. Minnesota Twins/Washington Senators

The Minnesota Twins, an American League charter franchise that began as the Washington Senators in 1901, have been no-hit nine times but not a single one of those no-hitter came at home in either D.C. or Minneapolis.

Here are the no-hitters against the Twins/Senators:

1 Babe Ruth (0 inn.)
Ernie Shore (9 inn.)
  Boston Red Sox (AL)
  Saturday, June 23, 1917 (First game of doubleheader)
Boston Red Sox 4, Washington Senators 0
Fenway Park (Boston)
(First no-hitter to feature more than one pitcher. Ruth was ejected for arguing with and punching the ump after walking lead-off batter Ray Morgan. Shore was called in and Morgan was thrown out trying to steal second. Shore then retired the next 26 batters for the “imperfect game.”)
