Who is the only major league baseball player to pitch back-to-back no-hitters?
Trivia Question Answer
Little known pitcher Johnny Vander Meer of Cincinnati pitched a no-hitter against the Boston Bees (who went on to become the Braves) on June 11, 1938 (Reds 3 – Bees 0). He did it again in his next outing on June 15, 1938 against Brooklyn (Reds 6 – Dodgers 0). The 2 wins were part of a 9-game win streak for Meer. 1938 was Meer’s first full year in the majors. He went on to an unremarkable 119-121 career record in the big leagues.
