The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for Max Scherzer, June 20, 2015 )
Max Scherzer gets his first no hitter!
He nearly got a no hitter in his last start and nearly threw a perfect game (ah those hit by pitches.) I think he will take it. Man, Jordan Zimmermann didn’t last long on this list. After no Washington no hitter since Bobby Burke’s gem for the Senators in 1931 and no franchise no hitter since Dennis Martinez’s perfecto in 1991, Zimmermann ended the regular season of 2014 with a no no.
Now Scherzer takes Zimmermann’s place. And by the way he has been pitching, he will be back.
It is time to update my list!
