    7/3/13 - Reds vs. Gigantes

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Heisey getting a start! Let's just hope he doesn't attempt a no-hitter of his own.

    Yeah, this lineup is interesting because Heisey plays v. the lefty Zito rather than DRob. Also Mes is catching Cingrani, which is interesting.

    I expected Hanigan to catch Cingrani tonight with Mes catching Leake tomorrow in the day game. Could imply more work for Mes overall, but hard to tell.

    I know that Johnny Vander Meer is the only Major League pitcher to throw no-hitters in two consecutive starts. Just out of curiosity, though, has there ever been an instance where a no-hitter was followed by another the very next day by a different pitcher from the same team?

    I don't know, but Jim Maloney no-hit the Astros in 1969 and the next night Astro Don Wilson returned the favor against the Reds with a no-hitter of his own.

    Let's hope THAT doesn't repeat.

    Jim Maloney of the Reds threw a no-hitter against the Astros and the very next game Don Wilson of the Astros no-hit the Reds. I remember that from back in the day.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Beat you by one minute, LOL.

    And this happened once before, Gaylord Perry and Ray Washburn, each no-hit the other's team in 1968. Just like the Maloney-Wilson thing, "revenge" no hitters in consecutive games.

    Never has the same team pitched two no-hitters in consecutive games. There were two no-hitters pitched on consecutive DAYS in 1917 by the same team, but there was a game in-between (doubleheader).

    The pitcher who, IMO, came closest to equaling Vander Meer's record of back-to-back no-hitters was Dave Stieb. And Stieb never threw a no-hitter. How is that possible? Stieb, in consecutive starts threw one-hitters. And each time he was just one strike away from a no-no.

    May 5th, 1917 - Ernie Koob of the St Louis Browns pitches a no-hitter against the White Sox. May 6th, his teammate Eddie Cicotte did the same thing to the same team.

    As I posted, this was not back to back games. The second no-hitter was game two of a double header. There was a game in-between.

    The Wikipedia page on no-hitters is very interesting, has some great stuff.

    Bumpus Jones, a Reds pitcher, threw a no-hitter in his first game. It was 1892.

    He finished his career with a 2-4 record.

    Someone might have written a player profile on him and posted it to the ORG just this morning....

    For back-to-back-to-back games it would be hard to beat what the Astros accomplished in 1986.

    Jim DeShaies two-hit the Dodgers in a 4-0 win. He walked one and struck out 10.
    Nolan Ryan one-hit the Giants in a 6-0 win. He walked three and struck out 12.
    Mike Scott then no-hit the Giants in a 2-0 win. He walked two and struck out 13.
    One note: Ryan only went 8 innings. Charlie Kerfield pitched the ninth, giving up a hit and a walk but no runs.

    In that three-game stretch, Astros' pitchers gave up 4 hits, no runs, six walks, while striking out 35. Yikes!
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
