More non-no-hitter trivia

Here are the four occasions during MLB’s modern ear (1900-present) that what happened tonight happened previously:

April 12, 1992 — Boston’s Matt Young in a 2-1 loss at Cleveland (see previous post)

July 1, 1990–Yankees’ Andy Hawkins no-hits the White Sox for eight innings in a 4-0 loss at Comiskey Park

April 30, 1967–Baltimore’s Steve Barber (8 2/3) and Stu Miller (1/3) combined to shut out Detroit for NINE innings at Memorial Stadium, but the Tigers win 2-1.

April 23, 1964–Houston’s Ken Johnson no-hits the Reds for nine innings at Houston, but the Reds win 1-0.

The last time the Dodgers were no-hit at home was on April 8, 1994, by Atlanta’s Kent Mercker, and the only other time it happened at Chavez Ravine was on July 28, 1991, when Dennis Martinez pitched a perfect game for Montreal. Finally, Montreal’s Mark Gardner no-hit the Dodgers for nine innings on July 26, 1991, then gave up a hit in the 10th and lost the game 1-0. From what I understand, Gardner was INITIALLY credited with a no-hitter in that game, but that ruling later was nullified, and the no-hitter came off the books.
