Washington Nationals and Montreal Expos no-hitters

The Washington Nationals and Montreal Expos have thrown a total of seven no-hitters during the franchise’s history dating back to 1969.

The Expos wasted no time in exiting the no no-no club. In the team’s ninth game on April 17, 1969, reliever-turned-starter Bill Stoneman struck out eight and walked five but gave up no-hits during the Expos’ 8-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Stoneman would get one more no-no in 1972 and Expos pitchers would throw two more before the move to D.C. Jordan Zimmermann threw the Nationals’ first no-no, and Max Scherzer added two in 2015.
