Biographical Information[edit]

Kevin Millwood threw a no-hitter on April 27, 2003, pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies.

His best season was 1999, with the Atlanta Braves, when he was second to Randy Johnson in the National League in ERA. He threw ten shutout innings in a game against the St. Louis Cardinals (boxscore) that year, and he more famously threw a one-hitter against the Houston Astros in the NLDS (boxscore). The lone hit that he allowed was a home run by Ken Caminiti.

On June 8, 2012, he pitched 6 no-hit innings for the Seattle Mariners against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but had to leave the game with a mild groin strain and the game still scoreless. Five relievers succeeded him on the mound to complete the no-hitter, with Stephen Pryor earning the 1-0 win in only his 4th major league appearance. He pitched his last major league game at the end of that season.

Millwood became eligible for the Hall of Fame in the 2018 Hall of Fame Election, although he did not receive a single vote.
