List of Toronto Blue Jays no-hitters
The Toronto Blue Jays are a Major League Baseball franchise based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Formed in 1977, they play in the American League East division. Pitchers for the Blue Jays have thrown one no-hitter in franchise history, which was accomplished by Dave Stieb on September 2, 1990, after losing three no-hit bids with two outs in the ninth inning. A no-hitter is officially recognized by Major League Baseball only “when a pitcher (or pitchers) allows no hits during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings”.
No perfect games, a special subcategory of no-hitter, have been thrown in Blue Jays history. The franchise came closest on August 4, 1989, when Stieb gave up a double to Yankees’ batter Roberto Kelly with two outs in the ninth and he scored by the next batter. As defined by Major League Baseball, “in a perfect game, no batter reaches any base during the course of the game.”
