The NoNoHitters 30We continue our NoNoHitters 30 countdown today with the Milwaukee Brewers, a team that spent its first season in 1969 in the Pacific Northwest as the Seattle Pilots. The team boasts just one no-hitter over its 46-year history, and it came in the team’s 19th season.

Juan Nieves notched his no-no on the road against the Baltimore Orioles at Memorial Stadium. Center fielder Robin Yount in that game made a game-ending diving catch in the ninth inning to save the no-hitter.

Here’s the Brewers’ sole no-no:

1 Juan Nieves
