1964: Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt .45s becomes the only pitcher to lose a complete game no-hitter in nine innings, losing 1-0 to the Cincinnati Reds. The game's only run was scored after Pete Rose reached second base on an error (by Johnson himself), went to third on a ground-out, and scored on a second error.
