Winning with no hits

Posted by Andy on June 29, 2008

The Dodgers beat the Angels last night despite getting zero hits. By now, many of us know the list below pretty, well, but here are the previous 4 times since 1956 that a team won while getting no-hit:

That 1967 game between the Tigers and the Orioles is absolutely bizarre. Click on the date for the box score. The Orioles got a hit in the 3rd and a hit in the 7th. These were the only hits in the game for either team, and they did not figure in the run scoring. The Orioles squeaked in a run in the 8th with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly. Then the Tigers put together a bizarre two-run rally in the 9th helped along mainly by walks and a wild pitch.

Ken Johnson's game in 1964 does count as a no-hitter officially, even though he lost. He pitched a 9-inning CG since the Reds were on the road at Houston. The rest of the games on this list (including the LAA-LAD game not yet shown) do not count as official no-hitters.
