  • No-hit pitchers who were also on the losing end of no-hitters

    This should pose as an interesting question...I came across the names of several no-hit pitchers who were also on the losing end of no-hit games. These include:

    *Bob Gibson (no-hit the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1971 and was on the losing end of Gaylord Perry's 1968 no-hitter)

    *Randy Johnson (pitched two no-hitters, one of which was a perfect game, and was on the losing end of Jose Jimenez's 1999 no-hitter)

    *Bo Belinsky (pitched one no-hitter and was on the losing end of Earl Wilson's no-hitter, both in 1962)

    *Sal Maglie no-hit the Philadelphia Phillies in 1956, and was the losing pitcher in Don Larsen's WS perfect game two weeks later

    This is only a partial list—I haven't had time to look up all of Retrosheet's no-hit listings, and even then they only have boxscores of the no-hitters from 1956 thru 2007.
    This is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball!

I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones.

      David Cone came VERY close to becoming the only pitcher to both win and lose a perfect game......

      On September 2, 2001, Mike Mussina retired the first 26 Red Sox before Carl Everett lined a two-strike pitch to left-center for a single to end his bid for a perfect game, but Mussina retired the next hitter to win the game 1-0. The losing pitcher was David Cone, who had pitched a perfect game on July 18, 1999, against Montreal.

        Off the top of my head - does Haddix's extra-inning perfect game/loss count as an official no-hitter? I wouldn't think so.

            He threw a no-hitter, but was also on the losing end of it as he allowed runs but his team didn't score. There should be a guy from the Yanks around 1990 but the rules morons probably erased his no-no, Andy Hawkins?
