There've been two in the major leaguesThe only starting pitcher to lose a complete-game no-hitter was Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt 45s (pre-Astros), who lost to Cincinnati 1-0 on April 23, 1964. Johnson's throwing error allowed Pete Rose to get to second with one out in the top of the ninth. Chico Ruiz moved Rose to third on a ground ball, and second baseman Nellie Fox's error on a grounder by Vada Pinson let Rose score the game's only run.

Steve Barber (8 2/3 innings) and Stu Miller (1/3 inning) of the Baltimore Orioles lost a no-hitter to Detroit 2-1 on April 30, 1967. The Tigers got both their runs when Barber walked Norm Cash and Ray Oyler to start the top of the ninth. Earl Wilson (who started for Detroit and got the win) bunted them over. After Willie Horton popped up, Barber threw a wild pitch, which let Dick Tracewski (running for Cash) score to make it 1-1. Miller came in to pitch to Don Wert, whose ground ball was booted by shortstop Mark Belanger, allowing Jake Wood (running for Oyler) to score the go-ahead run.

Harvey Haddix pitched 12 no hit innings and lost the game.

The best-remembered hard-luck story involved Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt .45s (now the Astros). On April 23, 1964, he gave up no hits in a 1-0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

Which New York Yankees pitcher lost a no-hitter in 1990?

On July 1, 1990, Andy Hawkins pitched a no-hitter and lost 4-0 to the Chicago White Sox. In 2001, commissioner Fay Vincent changed the definition of a no-hitter, to where a pitcher has to throw a complete, nine inning game. Andy lost credit for the no-hitter, being that the White Sox never came to bat in the 9th inning.

How many pitchers lost a game but had a no-hitter?

One--Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt .45s. Four other pitchers have pitched eight innings without a hit for the visiting team and lost, but because the home team never batted in the ninth inning these don't officially count as no-hitters.

Did Andy Hawkins pitch a no hitter?

Yes, but it is not considered an 'official' no hitter. Hawkins was with the New York Yankees when he pitched a no hitter against the Chicago White Sox in Chicago on July 1, 1990. Going into the bottom of the 8th inning, the score was 0-0. Incredibly, after he retired the first two batters, three errors and two walks allowed four runs to score and the Yankees wound up losing 4-0. At the time Hawkins was credited with a no hitter as he had pitched a complete game although his complete game was only 8 innings. The following season, the definition for a no hitter was changed to require a pitcher to pitch at least a 9 inning complete game to be credited with a no hitter. Since Hawkins' complete game was only 8 innings, he lost credit for the no hitter.
