Joseph Alan Cowley (born August 15, 1958 in Lexington, Kentucky) is a former professional baseball pitcher who played for the Atlanta Braves (1982), New York Yankees (1984–1985), Chicago White Sox (1986) and Philadelphia Phillies (1987). On September 19, 1986, Cowley threw a no-hitter for the White Sox with seven walks versus the California Angels in a 7-1 victory. Cowley did not win again in 1986, and after 4 winless starts in 1987, he was released by the Philadelphia Phillies. He thus became the only pitcher in major league history never to win another game after pitching a no-hitter.
