No hitter

A no hitter refers to a game which has been played in which a team has not been able to score one hit through normal means.

A game can be called a no hitter once it has been considered a completed game which has consisted of at least 9 innings without recording any hits.

No hitters are rare and occur very infrequently at a professional level. Since MLB records began, only 314 games have been declared no hitters.
