Addie Joss*, the last pitcher to no-hit the same team twice. Joss threw 74 pitches in his October 1908 perfect game against the White Sox and then shut down the Sox again in April 1910.
Tim Lincecum threw two no-nos against the Padres in 347 days (July 13, 2013 and June 25, 2014)
* Joss died in April 1911 from meningitis and held a career record of 160-97 with a 1.89 ERA, second best ever behind “Big Ed” Walsh, 1.82. Joss holds the record for career WHIP, .97. The National Baseball Hall of Fame waived the ten playing seasons requirement for Joss in 1977 and he was elected to the Hall in 1978.
Pitchers with 2 or more no-hitters, Cy Young Awards, and World Series rings:
That’s it. That’s the list.
(Randy Johnson has one World Series ring with his multiple no-hitters and Cy Youngs.)
Travis Wood and Tim Lincecum are a combined 4-4 in the Cubs-Giants game. (Wood put the only run on the board with a HR in the top of the 5th)
The rest of the two lineups have one hit (Anthony Rizzo)

Welcome back, pitchers and catchers!

stoned relaxed. Relaxed off his ass.
