No-hitter vs. good recreation

An ideal recreation solely happens when the pitcher does not permit a single baserunner within the recreation, as in 27 batters up and 27 batters down. In a no-hitter, baserunners are allowed, by stroll, hit by pitch, error and so forth. Each good recreation is a no-hitter, however not each no-hitter is an ideal recreation.

Postseason no-hitters

In baseball historical past, there have solely been two no-hitters thrown within the postseason.

The primary was Don Larsen’s good recreation for the Yankees towards the Dodgers on Oct. 8, 1956, in Sport 5 of the World Sequence.
