1. THE LAST MIAMI MARLINS NO-HITTER

I of course saved the best for last. The last Miami Marlins No-Hitter! When did it happen? June 3, 2017. That game, The Fish beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 at home. Sadly, there was no playoffs that season. In fact, that season is more remembered for a certain home run chase. You know the one by Giancarlo Stanton? However, the sadly playoff-less season did have Edinson Volquez pitch the aforementioned No-Hitter.

Edinson Volquez was a career 4.44 ERA/4.29 FIP pitcher with the Texas Rangers, Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates and Kansas City Royals. He was a bottom of the rotation starter, who was certainly not expected to pitch as good as he did that day. Volquez ended up finishing that 2017 season with a 4.19 ERA/4.35 FIP, with 7.9 K/9 and 5.2 BB/9 in 17 games and 92.1 innings pitched.

It's certainly weird to see a bottom of the rotation starter pitch a No-Hitter and then kind of disappear. Volquez actually had a 6.65 ERA/5.88 FIP since. He will always have that day however.

What did you think of all of these No-Hitters? Which one surprised you the most? Which one do you think was the best? Atlanta had the oldest one on the list, with Philly having the most recent one.
