In baseball,a no-hitter is a game in which a team was not able to record a hit. Major League Baseball (MLB) officially defines a no-hitter as a completed game in which a team that batted in at least nine innings recorded no hits. A pitcher who prevents the opposing team from achieving a hit is said to have "thrown a no-hitter". In most cases,no-hitters are recorded by a single pitcher who throws a complete game;one thrown by two or more pitchers is a combined no-hitter.
