Regular season[edit]

  • August 30, 1910: Tom Hughes threw nine no-hit innings against the Cleveland Naps, but the game was tied 0-0, so the game went to extra innings. Hughes gave up a hit with one out in the tenth, then wound up giving up five runs in the eleventh to lose the game, 5-0.[1] The franchise would wait another seven years for their first official no-hitter.
