Madison Bumgarner throws seven-inning ‘no-hitter’ vs. Braves; here’s why it won’t count as official no-no

Arizona Diamondbacks veteran left-hander Madison Bumgarner twirled seven hitless innings against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday. However, because the game was part of a doubleheader and thus spanned just seven innings, Bumgarner’s effort does not officially count as a no-hitter.

Here’s how MLB.com’s Matt Kelly not so long ago explained the rules clarification:

“According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Major League Baseball’s official statistician, neither a team nor an individual pitcher will be credited with a no-no in a scheduled seven-inning game of a doubleheader—unless that game goes to extras. If the contest extends to at least nine innings and that pitcher (or a team’s group of pitchers) has still not allowed a hit, then it goes down in the history books as a no-no.”

Kelly further explains that the ruling stems from a 1991 decision in which then commissioner Fay Vincent declared that no-hitters must span at least nine innings.
