The history of baseball in 2021 appears in the form of big, fat, and zero.
That’s because, at this point in the Major League Baseball season, seven no hits have been thrown, which makes baseball expected to break the record for the most throws in a season.
Although many teams and pitchers are happy to engrave their names in history books, Cleveland, Mariners, and Rangers are dangerously close to being on the verge of not being recognized. All three teams have been twice in 2021. Missed. The entire four months of tough games are yet to be played, and one of the two teams is likely to create a season’s record of no hits against them.
Everything you need to know about the “forbidden years” and more information is here:
How many no-hitters will there be in 2021?
As of 2021, seven no-hitters have been thrown:
- The Padres’ Joe Musgrove started the banned season against the Rangers on April 9.
- White Sox starter Carlos Rodden defeated division rival Cleveland on April 14.
- Baltimore pitcher John Means missed the Mariners on May 5.
- Reds starter Wade Miley wrote his name into the history book in the second no-hitter game of the season against Cleveland on May 7.
- Spencer Turnbull of the Tigers missed Seattle on May 18th, the second time the Mariners missed this season.
- The Yankees’ Corey Kluber missed Texas on the second night of May 19. This was the second time the Rangers missed this season.
- After a brief respite, the Cubs pitchers Zach Davis, Ryan Tepera, Andrew Chafin and Craig Kimbrel combined pitchers to break the Major League Baseball record.
The record of no hits in a season (since 1900) for Major League Baseball is seven, and it has now occurred five times: 1990, 1991, 2012, 2015, and 2021.
To make this year’s no-hitter match even more impressive, Musgrove, Rodon and Kluber are all one batsman away from a perfect match. Musgrove and Rodon hit the batter (Rodon in the ninth inning) and Kluber hit the batter.
There could be multiple reasons for so many no hits at the beginning of the season:
— Baseball changes may be the most popular reason, pitchers ( Major League Baseball ) Acknowledge that certain changes have affected the flight of the ball, resulting in fewer home runs and a fairer playing field for the pitchers.
-The offensive ideology continues to value home runs or sabotage methods on the plate and devalue contacts, which, to be fair, is supported by statistics. Nevertheless, the average batting rate of Major League Baseball is very low, which does not bode well for the offense to move forward.
-Pitchers are becoming more and more annoying, even if the seven taboos so far are not made by the pitcher with the best “things”.
Most No Hitters in a single season in Major League Baseball
If things continue to develop, then we will witness history in the 2021 season.
The record of no hits in a season is seven. This number has been recorded five times in the history of Major League Baseball: 1990, 1991, 2012, 2015 and now, 2021.
Before the modern era (1900), there were eight no-hitters in the 1884 season.
The most no hits against a team in a season
Cleveland, the Mariners, and the Rangers are on a very unfortunate historical cliff: these three teams have missed twice in the 2021 season, and unless their offense changes significantly, they can set a record for most of the time. No hits in the season.
No team missed three times in a season, but the last two teams that missed twice in a season eventually got some good luck: the Mets and the Dodgers both missed twice in 2015 Missed, and the team continues to win their division. Before losing to the Royals in the World Series, the Mets will continue to win the National League Championship.
Therefore, for Cleveland, Seattle and Texas, perhaps this is not all bad news, although no one will mistake these teams for potential contenders for the World Series.
When was the last perfect match for MLB?
Although the aforementioned Musgrove, Rodon and Kluber were close to completing the 24th, 25th and 26th perfect games in MLB history, the baseball world will have to wait for the next game.
Three of the seven no-hitter games in 2012 were perfect: White Sox right-hander Philip Humber, Giants right-hander Matt Kane and former Mariners great Felix Hernand Si made perfect shots that season.
The nine years between perfect matches are the longest wait in MLB history, since the gap between Catfish Hunter in 1968 and Len Barker in 1981.
