Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kenneth Travis Johnson (born June 16, 1933 in West Palm Beach, Florida) is a former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who became the first and so far only pitcher to lose a complete game nine-inning no-hitter. Pitching for the Houston Colt .45s on April 23, 1964, Johnson gave up no hits in a 1-0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. The game's only run was scored after Pete Rose reached second base on an error (by Johnson himself), went to third on a ground-out, and scored on a second error. The following week he appeared on the television show I've Got a Secret where panelist Henry Morgan described the loss as "the saddest story of the year."show more
