A note about no-hitters
As I type this, Tucker Barnhart only moments ago hit a single in the eighth inning to break up Max Scherzer’s bid at his second no-hitter this season.
From the Reds media relations department:
In their 5-0 loss to Cole Hamels and the Phillies on 7/25 at Wrigley Field the Cubs were no-hit for the first time since Sandy Koufax’ perfect game on 9/9/65, snapping Chi’s streak of 7,920 games with at least 1 hit…was the longest streak of consecutive regular season games without being the victim of a no-hitter for any team in modern Major League history.
The longest active regular season streak now belongs to the Reds, who have gone 7,088 games since Phi’s Rick Wise threw a no-hitter in a 4-0 win on 6/23/71 at Riverfront Stadium…
Roy Halladay did throw a no-hitter in a 4-0 win vs Cin at Phi’s Citizens Bank Park in Game 1 of the 2010 National League Division Series.
