I don't know the answer, but I wonder who are the pitchers who have, at some point in their careers, led the league in saves AND thrown a no-hitter. Lowe, Eck, Righetti... Is that it?

Probably a few guys like Grove or Young did it in one of those years where three saves led the league.

Did Smoltz ever throwma no hitter?

Yes, both Grove and Young did do it, as did Mathewson.

Smoltz took one no-no into the ninth, but never threw one.

Yes, since 1969.

Before 1969, per BR PI:

Bender, Walsh, Sad Sam Jones, Hubbell, Clyde Shoun, Dave Davenport, George Mullin, Cy Young.

I'm stunned that Hoyt Wilhelm isn't on that list, but his best years were only 2nd in saves.
