The most recent no-hitter for all 30 MLB teams

The North Side of Chicago is now the No-Hit Side.

Cubs right hander Alec Mills pitched the second no-hitter of the 2020 MLB season on Sept. 13, etching his name in the record books just weeks after White Sox hurler Lucas Giolito tallied a no-hitter vs. the Pirates. It’s even sweeter when you add in that Mills grew up a Cubs fan. 

The Cubs’ 12-0 drubbing of the Brewers was only made sweeter by Mills’ effort, going the distance while walking just three batters in the process. It’s the Cubs’ first no-hitter since Jake Arrieta no-hit the Reds on April 21, 2016, and the 16th no-hitter in Cubs history.

There have been more than 215,000 games in MLB history but there have been just over 300 no-hitters thrown, meaning the members of the no-hit club are among some pretty elite company.

No-hitters come in all shapes and sizes, with no two no-nos looking the same. Below you can see every team’s most recent no-hitter, every perfect game and more.

No-hitter vs. Perfect Game

A perfect game only occurs when the pitcher doesn’t allow a single baserunner in the game, as in 27 batters up and 27 batters down. In a no-hitter baserunners are allowed, by walk, hit by pitch, error and so forth. Every perfect game is a no-hitter, but not every no-hitter is a perfect game.

Postseason no-hitters

In baseball history, there have only been two no-hitters thrown in the postseason.

The first was Don Larsen’s perfect game for the Yankees against the Dodgers on Oct. 8, 1956, in Game 5 of the World Series.

The late, great Hall of Famer Roy Halladay joined Larsen as the second man to throw a no-hitter in the postseason when he no-hit the Cincinnati Reds for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2010 NLDS.

List of Perfect Games

Since 1903 — the World Series era — there have been 21 perfect games. There have been 23 perfectos total when factoring in pre-modern era play.

Don Larsen’s perfect game remains the only perfect game in postseason history.
