As the Padres’ no no-hitter count reaches 7,316 games today (Domonic Brown tagged Ian Kennedy in the second for a homer), we celebrate the one-year anniversary of Andrew Cashner’s first of his two one-hitters.
Cashner was holding the Pittsburgh Pirates without a base runner through six innings on Sept. 16, 2013, but José Tabata led off the seventh inning with a single. Tabata was sent back to the dugout on a double play, and Cashner finished the game with as a 2-0 one-hit shutout, facing the minimum 27 batters. He walked none, and the Padres played flawlessly behind him.
Cashner’s second one-hitter was on April 11 of the season, a 6-0 win over the Detroit Tigers.
