Cincinnati Reds No-Hitters

With the San Francisco Giants Pitcher Johnathan Sanchez pitching the first no hitter of the 2009 baseball season last week I was curious as to how many Reds pitchers have thrown no hitters. We all know about Johnny Vander Meer's back to back no hitters in 1938 and Tom Brownings Perfect game in 1988. But do you know any of the other names on the list? Below are a list of all of the Reds no hitters since 1900:

Noodles Hahn
July 12, 1900
Reds over the Phillies 4-0

Fred Toney
May 2nd, 1917
Reds over the Cubs 1-0 in 10 innings

Hod Eller
May 11, 1919
Reds over the Cardinals 6-0

Johnny Vander Meer
June 11, 1938
Reds over the Boston Braves 3-0

Johnny Vander Meer
