The Milwaukee Brewers have now gone 32 years since their last (and only) no-hitter.
On Wednesday, April 15, 1987, Juan Nieves no-hit the Orioles for a 7-0 win at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium that extended Milwaukee’s season-start winning streak to 9-0. Nieves threw 126 pitches, walked five and received some help from the players behind him.
Robin Yount made a diving catch of Eddie Murray’s liner to right-center for the final out. Jim Paciorek and Paul Molitor also made some defensive gems to keep the no-no alive.
Nieves’ feat marked the first no-hitter thrown by a pitcher born in Puerto Rico.
