Major League Baseball’s Combined No-Hitters

The Philadelphia Phillies' Cole Hamels (l.), Jake Diekman, Ken Giles And Jonathan Papelbon Threw A No-Hitter Tonight

The Philadelphia Phillies’ Cole Hamels (l.), Jake Diekman, Ken Giles And Jonathan Papelbon Threw A No-Hitter Tonight

It’s happened 11 times – combined no-hitters – including tonight.

Four Philadelphia Phillies pitchers joined arms to toss a no-hitter against the Atlanta Braves.

The first combined no-hitter, almost 100 years ago, featured none other than Babe Ruth himself, as a member of the Boston Red Sox. Crazy thing is, he was tossed from the game for arguing balls and strikes before even recording an out. Ernie Shore came in and retired all 27 batters, including the one the Babe left on base.

The second combined no-hitter, by the Baltimore OriolesSteve Barber and Stu Miller, is the only one that was a loss.

The two most recent combined no-nos before tonight were both in interleague play and featured no less than six pitchers apiece. That’s a lot of pitchers.
