A look at the Phillies' no-hitters

A look at the Phillies' no-hitters

The Phillies' franchise was established in 1883. Since then, 20,127 regular-season games have been played. Eleven times, a Phillies pitcher has thrown a no-hitter.

On Sept. 1, 2014, a Labor Day afternoon game in Atlanta, a 12th no-no was crafted by the Phillies -- the first combined no-hitter in franchise history, as four different pitchers toed the rubber that day.

Here's a capsule of no-hitters thrown by Phillies:

Aug. 29, 1885
RHP Charlie Ferguson, 1-0, over the Provident Grays at the Phillies' home field, Recreation Park. Age: 22. Catcher: Jack Clements. Mound was 50 feet from home plate. Season record: 26-20, 2.22 ERA.

Signed for $1,500 in 1884 after playing for the University of Virginia, Ferguson won 22 games as a rookie on a team that had only 39 wins. He died from typhoid fever on April 28, 1888, two weeks shy of his 25th birthday. In four seasons with the Phillies, he compiled a 99-64 record, 2.67 ERA. A gifted athlete, he also played the outfield and finished with a .288 career average and 157 RBIs.

July 8, 1898
RHP Red Donahue, 5-0, vs. Boston Beaneaters (Braves) at Baker Bowl. Age: 25. Catcher: Ed McFarland. Mound was at current distance of 60 feet, six inches. Season record: 16-17, 3.55.

A Villanova University product who pitched 13 years in the Majors with the New York Giants, St. Louis (NL), Phillies (1898-1901), St. Louis (AL), Cleveland and Detroit, Donahue was acquired from St. Louis (NL) on Nov. 10, 1897, with Monte Cross and Klondike Douglass for Jack Clements, Lave Cross, Tommy Dowd, Jack Taylor and $1,000. Donahue compiled 72-48 record with Phillies, winning 20 or more games twice.

Sept. 18, 1903
RHP Chick Fraser, 10-0, at the Chicago Cubs. Age: 30. Catcher: Red Dooin. Largest margin of victory for a Phillies no-hitter. Season record: 12-17, 4.50 ERA.

Fraser pitched 14 seasons in the Majors with Louisville (NL), Cleveland (NL), Phillies 1899-1901; 1902-04, Philadelphia (AL), Cincinnati (NL) and Chicago (NL). Purchased from Cleveland on Dec. 16, 1898 for $900 or $1,000, he compiled a 175-212 record, including 74-75 with Phillies.

May 1, 1906
LHP John Lush, 6-0, vs. Brooklyn Dodgers at Baker Bowl. Youngest Phillies pitcher to toss a no-hitter (20 years, eight months) and shortest, at 5-foot-9. Catcher: Jerry Donovan. Season record: 18-15, 2.37 ERA.

Born in Williamsport, Pa., Lush attended Girard Prep in Philly. He pitched seven seasons in the NL: Phillies (1904-07) and St. Louis. He was traded to Cardinals on June 10, 1907, for RHP Buster Brown, and then tossed a six-inning no-hitter on Aug. 6, 1908, vs. Brooklyn in a 2-0 win. Lush compiled a 66-85 career record, including 23-26 with the Phillies.

June 21, 1964
RHP Jim Bunning, 6-0, vs. the New York Mets at Shea Stadium, first game of a Father's Day doubleheader. Age: 32. Catcher: Gus Triandos. First perfect game in the NL since 1890. Season record: 19-8, 2.63 ERA, his first season with the Phillies.

Bunning struck out 10, including pinch-hitter John Stephenson, to end the masterpiece, which took 90 pitches (69 strikes, 21 balls). Offensively, Bunning drove in a pair of the runs with a double. The only potential hit was wiped out by a sensational diving stop by second baseman Tony Taylor of a drive by Jesse Gonder in the fifth inning. Taylor knocked down the line drive, crawled after the ball and got Gonder at first base. While pitching for Detroit, Bunning threw a no-hitter vs. the Red Sox at Fenway Park on July 20, 1958; the last out as a fly to right by Ted Williams.

June 23, 1971
RHP Rick Wise, 4-0, over the Cincinnati Reds at Riverfront Stadium. Age: 25. Catcher: Tim McCarver. Only pitcher to pitch a no-hitter and hit two home runs. Season record: 17-14, 2.88 ERA.

A sixth-inning walk to Davey Concepcion kept Wise from a perfect game. Leading, 1-0, after two innings, Wise hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning and a solo shot in the eighth. The final out was a line drive by Pete Rose to third baseman John Vukovich.

Aug. 15, 1990
LHP Terry Mulholland, 4-0, over the San Francisco Giants at Veterans Stadium. Age: 27. Catcher: Darren Daulton. First no-hitter at home for a Phillies pitcher since 1898. Season record: 9-10. 3.34 ERA.

Only one runner reached base on an error by third baseman Charlie Hayes leading off the seventh inning, but the next batter grounded into a double play. Mulholland struck out eight and threw 105 pitches. The final out was a line drive by Gary Carter to Hayes.

May 23, 1991
RHP Tommy Greene, 2-0, over the Montreal Expos at Olympic Stadium. Age: 24. Catcher: Darren Fletcher. Phillies scored runs in the first and ninth innings. Season record: 13-7, 3.38 ERA.

Greene allowed seven baserunners on seven walks; he struck out 10 and threw 130 pitches. He retired 11 in a row from the second inning through the fifth, and the final out was a one-hopper by third baseman Tim Wallach to Greene, who raised his arms in the air while running to first base before tossing the historic ball to Ricky Jordan.

April 27, 2003
RHP Kevin Millwood, 1-0, over the San Francisco Giants at Veterans Stadium. Age: 28. Catcher: Mike Lieberthal. CF Ricky Ledee homered as the Phillies' second hitter in the first inning for the lone run. Season record: 14-10, 4.01 ERA.

Millwood walked three and struck out 10 over 108 pitches. The walks occurred against the first batter, with two out in the fourth and with two out in the ninth. Marquis Grissom flied out to Ledee for the final out. It was the second Phillies no-hitter in the 33-year history of Veterans Stadium, and both were against the Giants.

May 29, 2010
RHP Roy Halladay, 1-0, over the Florida Marlins at Sun Life Stadium. Age: 33. Catcher: Carlos Ruiz. Second perfect game in franchise history. Phillies run came in the third inning and was unearned. Season record: 21-10, 2.44 ERA, in first Phillies season, first 20-game winner by a Phillies RHP since Robin Roberts in 1955.

Halladay threw 115 pitches, 72 for strikes. He struck out 11 -- six looking and five swinging. He faced three pinch-hitters in the ninth inning, and the last out was a grounder to third baseman Juan Castro by Ronny Paulino. It was the third time the last out of a Phillies no-hitter was a 5-3 play.

Oct. 6, 2010
RHP Halladay, 4-0, over the Cincinnati Reds at Citizens Bank Park, the first game of the National League Division Series. Catcher: Ruiz. Only Phillies pitcher with two no-hitters.

Halladay threw a no-hitter in his first postseason game, and it was the second no-hitter in MLB postseason history (Don Larsen's perfect game for the Yankees in the 1956 World Series). Only a two-out walk to Jay Bruce in the fifth inning kept Halladay from a second perfect game. He threw 104 pitches (79 strikes, 25 balls) and struck out eight. Final out: Brandon Phillips, Ruiz to Ryan Howard.

Sept. 1, 2014
LHP Cole Hamels (6 IP, 5 BB, 7 SO, 108 pitches), LHP Jake Diekman (1 IP, 2 SO, 15 pitches), RHP Ken Giles (1 IP, 3 SO, 15 pitches), RHP Jonathan Papelbon (1 IP, 9 pitches), 7-0, over the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field. Catcher: Ruiz -- his third no-hitter, most in Phillies history.

Hamels issued a leadoff walk in the sixth inning. The next 12 Braves were retired, with seven strikeouts. Total pitches: 147. Hamels was the winner (8-6); his season record was 9-9 with a 2.46 ERA.
