    Ken Johnson no hit the Astros, 1965 I believe, and it may have been that he lost the game?

    Ken Johnson no-hit the Reds, April 23, 1964. With one out in the ninth inning, Pete Rose's bunt was fielded by Johnson, but he threw wildly past first and Rose went to second. Rose advanced to third on a ground out and scored when Nellie Fox fumbled a grounder by Vada Pinson. Joe Nuxhall got the win for the Reds.

    From the Reds 1969 Yearbook:

    It wasn't arriving at the park, merely waiting for transportation that again thrust Culver into the spotlight this time in Pittsburgh. Freely admitting to lavish spending when it comes to the art of sartorial splendor, Culver, bedecked in a purple, two button, doublebreasted suit with matching accessories, stood in front of the Carlton House Hotel and had motorists stopping as they gaped in disbelief.
