6 near no-nos in 5 days? History suggests one may break through tonight

September-28calIn the past five days, six pitchers have reached the fifth inning or later with a no-hitter intact. History tells us that there’s a good chance one will go even deeper tonight.

September 28 is one of four dates sharing the record for most no-hitters with six. The others are April 27, May 15 and September 20. The date pulled into a four-way tie on the final game of the 2014 season, when the Washington Nationals’ Jordan Zimmermann no-hit the Miami Marlins.

#11, the New York Yankees

The NoNoHitters 30The New York Yankees, the world’s most storied sports franchise, have tossed 11 no-hitters over the team’s history dating back to 1901, putting the team at No. 11 on our NoNoHitters 30 list. The Yankees’ most famous no-no, of course, is Don Larsen’s perfect game in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.

George Mogridge threw the New York Yankees' first no-hitter in 1917, a 2-1 win over the Boston Red Sox.

The Yankees franchise actually began in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles, spending two years in Maryland before relocating to north Manhattan’s Hilltop Park as the New York Highlanders. The nickname Yankees, which had started appearing in newspaper columns, was officially adopted in 1913.

Allie Reynolds is the only Yankees pitcher to throw two no-hitters, and both came during the 1951 season. David Wells and David Cone also threw perfect games for the Yanks.
