Although Gene Nelson was mostly a reliever over his 12-year career, he did pitch one two-hitter on June 7, 1982 as a member of the Seattle Mariners against the Texas Rangers. He didn't walk anyone and struck out 5 in the game. The Mariners won 6-0. The only 2 hits were singles by Buddy Bell and Dave Hostetler.
