Grapefruit League
Nine Atlanta Braves pitchers combined for a Spring Training 10-inning no-hitter against the Houston Astros, one year ago today.

The pitchers combined to allow two earned runs on nine walks while striking out nine in Kissimmee, Florida, in a 10-inning game that ended in a 2-2 tie. They were: Cody Martin (2), Jim Johnson (1), Josh Outman (1), Brandon Cunniff (1), Ian Thomas (1), Mauricio Cabrera (1), Lucas Sims (1), Justin Jackson (1), Jairo Heredia (1).

Of course Spring Training no-hitters don’t count, but here are the Boston/Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves no-hitters that do count: Braves No-hitters.

Note that only one official major league no-hitter has ended in a tie, and that was back in 1884. In that Oct. 4 game, the Brooklyn Atlantics’ Sam Kimber no-hit the Toledo Blue Stockings in an American Association game at Brooklyn’s Washington Park that lasted 10 innings.
