Edwin Jackson tossed the second no-hitter in D-backs history and 278th no-hitter in Major League history on June 25, 2010 at the Rays in memorable fashion, as his 149th pitch induced Jason Bartlett's game-ending groundout to Stephen Drew. Jackson's 149 pitches were the most all-time in a no-hitter, while his 36 batters faced tied for the most and his 8 walks tied for the third-most all-time. He threw more than 60 pitches in the first 3.0 innings, causing the D-backs to warm-up 4 relievers.
Adept at setting records throughout his career, Randy Johnson added something new to his impressive resume when he retired all 27 Atlanta Braves he faced on May 18, 2004, at Turner Field. At 40 years, 251 days, he became the oldest pitcher in history to record a perfect game, bettering Cy Young, who was 37 years, 37 days on May 5, 1904. Johnson's gem was the 15th in modern day regular season history, the 16th including Don Larsen's perfect effort for the Yankees in the 1956 World Series.
Johnson fanned 13 in the 117-pitch performance, which concluded with a 98-mph pitch to Eddie Perez to end the game. It was the first no-no in franchise history and first perfect game in the Majors since the Yankees' David Cone on July 18, 1999 vs. Montreal. It was also the first perfecto in the National League since the Expos' Dennis Martinez on July 28, 1991 at the Dodgers.
