Metros ace Judson Martel threw a no-hitter on June 4, 2017[1]
A no-hitter (or no-hit game, sometimes no-no) is a game in which a team is not able to record a single hit. A pitcher who prevents an opposing team from getting a hit during a game is said to have "thrown a no-hitter". In Bull League statistics, a no-hitter is recognized only when accomplished by a single pitcher in a complete game, as combined no-hitters are not recognized in the game statistics.

A no-hitter in which no batter reaches base for any reason is referred to as a perfect game. There are multiple ways a batter can reach base without a hit, including a walk, fielding error, being hit by a pitch, on an uncaught third strike, catcher's interference, or a fielder's choice. Most no-hitters are shutouts, but because of the numerous ways a batter can reach base without a hit, it is possible for a pitcher to give up runs or even lose a game in a no-hitter.
