In both instances, it was the same guy - Ronny Cedeno and Troy Glaus. Take those two out of the line-up for some reason, and maybe we'd have had three perfect games in five days.

He struck out six, giving him a game score of 85.

It must have seemed as if a no-hitter was possible every time these three guys took the mound. Maloney's best years coincided exactly with Koufax's (1963-66), and like Koufax Maloney was done by age 30. Maloney was (theoretically, anyway) a teammate of Ryan's for a few weeks in the winter of 1971-72, before the Angels gave Maloney his unconditional release.

He pitched 10 innings of no-hit ball, then gave up a homer to Johnny Lewis in the 11th to lose the no-hitter, the shutout, and the ballgame. He also had a no-hitter (and a 94 game score) on 19 August that year, against the Cubs.

In fact, his highest Cincinnati game score came in his first start for the Reds (and it was not the no-hitter).
