Probably the most infamous case happened on July 1, 1991. New York Yankees @ Chicago White Sox. Andy Hawkins pitched an unofficial no-hitter in a 4-0 loss for the Yankees (he pitched for the visiting team in a game which the home team won and only pitched 8 innings. MLB defines a no-hitter with a pitcher pitching at least 9 innings).

Hawkins dominated the White Sox into the eighth inning, where he retired the first two batters. After that, Sammy Sosa reached on a throwing error by Yankees third baseman Mike Blowers. Hawkins then walked the next two batters. That brought up Robin Ventura, who lofted a fly ball to left field. The blustery winds buffeted the ball, and rookie Jim Leyritz, normally a third baseman, booted it, allowing all three baserunners to score. The next batter, Ivan Calderón, hit a fly ball to right field, which was lost in the sun and dropped by Jesse Barfield. The final count for the inning: four runs, no hits, three errors. The Yankees, who had not scored all game, were unable to score in the 9th inning, giving Hawkins the loss.

Baltimore Orioles Dave McNalley walked the bases loaded and walked in the winning run in the bottom half of an away game.

On April 23, 1964 in Houston, Colt .45s' pitcher Ken Johnson threw a no-hitter loss against the Cincinnati Reds. With the score tied 0-0 in the top of the ninth inning, Houston got the first out of the inning. Pete Rose came to bat, and bunted. Johnson fielded the ball and threw it wildly to first-base, allowing Rose to reach second-base on the error. The next batter, Chico Ruiz hit the ball off Johnson's shin to the third baseman, who then threw to first for the second out of the inning. Rose advanced to third base on the play. Next up was Vada Pinson, who hit a ground-ball to second base, but second baseman Nellie Fox bobbled the ball, and his throw to first was too late. Pete Rose scored from third base on Fox's error. Frank Robinson flied out for the third out of the inning. One run, no hits, two errors, one left on base. The Colt .45s went down in the bottom of the ninth to end the game.

September 19, 1986 - Joe Cowley of Chicago no-hit California winning 7-1.July 29, 1968 - George Culver of Cincinnati no-hit Philadelphia winning 6-1.

August 25, 1967 - Dean Chance of Minnesota no-hit Cleveland winning 2-1.

May 17, 1963 - Don Nottebart of Houston no-hit Philadelphia winning 4-1.

April 30, 1967 - Steve Barber and Stu Miller of Baltimore combined on a no-hitter against Detroit losing 2-1.

July 28, 1976 - John Odom and Francisco Barrios of Chicago combined on a no-hitter against Oakland winning 2-1.

What is the difference between a no hitter and perfect game?

A no hitter is a game pitched where one team has no hits the entire game. This is an extremely difficult feat as there have only been 265 no-hitters in Major League Baseball since 1876. A perfect game is where a pitcher for one team prevents the other team from reaching base during the entire game. That means that the pitcher didn't allow any hits, walks, hit batsmen, or anyone reaching base safely for any other reason. This means that the opposing team sends 27 batters to the plate and all 27 are retired. A perfect game is even rarer than a no hitter as it has only occurred 19 times since 1900.

What does a volleyball hitter do?

A volleyball hitter is usually positioned in the front row of the rotation. Also, possibly known as the blocker when playing defense the hitter's job is to jump in front of the opposing team's spike or tip to try and stop it from coming over onto their side of the court. When playing offense the hitter's job is to spike the ball to the other side of the court after it has been set up by the setter.

What are the odds of pitching a no hitter?

According to Baseball Reference, through August 30, 2008 there have been 386,916 MLB games played (this number includes games played in the National Association, the first major league which was in existence from 1871-1875). There have been 257 no hitters of nine innings or more thrown in MLB history. This averages out to one no hitter every 1505.5 games. Interestingly, on 32 occasions, two or more no hitters have been thrown within 10 days of each other. And on two occasions (April 22, 1898 and June 29, 1990) two no hitters were thrown on the same day. Not being a statistical major, I can't really tell you the odds of pitching a no hitter. But, looking at the list of ho hitters pitched, the odds are about 1 in 8 that a second no hitter will be pitched within 10 days of a no hitter.
