Stat-urday, 6/9/2018


On Thursday, the 12th minor league no-hitter of the season was thrown by Paul Balestrieri of the Peoria Chiefs. So, just have many no-hitters have there been in minor league baseball? Well, as far as we know, there have been well over 4,200. Since 2010, 200 no-hitters have been thrown. Below are a few stats:

  • 135 MiLB no-hitters since 2010 have been in games with 9 or more innings
    • 86 had just one pitcher
    • 33 had two pitchers
    • 52 had three pitchers
    • 23 had four pitchers
    • 4 had 5 pitchers
    • 1 had 6 pitchers
    • 1 had 7 pitchers
  • 13 pitchers have been involved in two minor league no-hitters
    • 5 pitchers have pitched two no-hitters by themselves (Kyle Schepel, Victor Mateo, Travis Tingle, Tayler Mahle, and Matt Sergey)
  • 5 no-hitters have been thrown by Orioles’ minor league pitchers:
    • Chris Tillman, Norfolk Tides, 4/28/2010
    • Nathan Moreau, Frederick Keys, 6/30/2010
    • Eddie Gamboa, Bowie Baysox, 6/30/2013
    • John Means, Delmarva Shorebirds, 7/31/2015
    • Ofelky Peralta, Delmarva Shorebirds, 7/8/2016

Since the 1800s, minor league baseball has seen 183 perfect games. Of those, 49 have been 9 innings or more, although we do not have full information on about 41 games so we don’t know how many innings they were. The most recent was last September, when Connor Grey of the Kane County Cougars pitched a perfect game against the Clinton LumberKings.

Happy Stat-urday!
