Madison Bumgarner No-Hitter
Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Madison Bumgarner held the Atlanta Braves to zero hits on April 25 of this season. However, it was only a seven-inning game (due to it being the first of a double-header that day) and therefore the MLB didn't count it as an official no-hitter.
Tampa Bay Rays Combined No-Hitter
The Tampa Bay Rays combined to throw a seven-inning no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians on July 7. Collin McHugh, Josh Fleming, Diego Castillo, Matt Wisler and Pete Fairbanks combined to accomplish the feat. However, the MLB doesn't count this as an official no-hitter because it was only a seven-inning contest (first game of a double-header).
