Trivia - Donít Cheat
 
There was a 10 inning major league no-hitter in which the losing cleanup batter went 0 for 5.

Who was he (the cleanup hitter, not the pitcher)?

If you look it up successfully, please do not post.

A hint will be provided if Barry Sloate doesn’t know the answer.

Yowza. That's either a lot of walks/hbp's or a lot of errors!!

I'd guess Reggie vs Nolan Ryan when Ryan was still issuing a ton of walks.

Oops. I couldnít figure it out either. On checking the play by play I learned that it was a ten inning no-no.

Still remarkable nevertheless.

The only 10 inning no hitter I know of.. my Pirates beat the Astros in the late 1990s on a combined no hitter. So I will guess Jeff Bagwell.

Redsox?

Maloney
 
I think it must be the 10-inning 10-walk no-hitter by the Reds' Jim Maloney in 1965. Losing cleanup hitter would have been - Santo? Banks? B. Williams?

I have no idea Frank. There haven't been very many 10 inning no hitters, but I'm guessing the pitcher walked quite a few batters.

Hint: It was the first game of a double header.
