Ever since I added a column of “Uniform number” to my master no-hitters spreadsheet a few years ago, I’ve enjoyed tracking no-hitters by number.
Four Los Angeles Dodgers pitchers combined to no-hit the San Diego Padres in Monterrey, Mexico Friday night for Major League Baseball’s 298th no-hitter.
The San Diego Padres came within four outs of the team’s first-ever no-hitter Friday night before center fielder misplayed a pop fly into a double.
The Montreal Expos’ Bill Stoneman no-hit the Philadelphia Phillies in just the Expos’ ninth game, 49 years ago today. The San Diego Padres, an expansion partner of the Expos, are still awaiting the team’s first no-hitter.
The San Diego Padres’ no no-hitters streak was born at San Diego Stadium, 49 years today. On April 8, 1969, Padres starter Dick Selma gave up a leadoff single to the Houston Astros’ Jesús Alou to mark the first Padres game without a no-hitter.
With single-digit pitcher Clayton Richard (No. 3) getting the start tonight for the San Diego Padres, I figured it’s a good time look at the single-digit trend and how it relates to no-hitters.
