  • Last non-perfect no-hitter pitcher to face the minimum?

    Just curious as to who the last pitcher to throw a non-perfect game no-hitter to face the minimum (i.e. 27 batters faced). This of course could be achieved if a batter walks or reaches on an error but is then erased on a double play.

    I'm sure it's happened previously sometime in baseball history, but how long ago was it that a pitcher achieved this feat?

    Verlander last year did it. Walked one, but faced 27 (eliminated in double play)

      The only one that comes to mind is the Babe Ruth-Ernie Shore "perfect" game on June 23, 1917. Ruth was ejected after he walked the leadoff batter. Shore came in to replace Ruth. The base runner was thrown out attempting to steal. Shore then retired the next 26 batters.

        Mark Buehrle in 2007 vs. Texas. Walked Sammy Sosa in the fourth inning, then picked him off first. Nobody else reached base.

          Thanks all. Didn't know it had been done so recently.

            Was Shore credited with a perfect game by historians? Or at least a no-hitter?

              I believe by current MLB rules this is considered a combined no-hitter.

                No, not a complete game. But his position is secure as the only pluperfect game pitcher.
