John Lackey came within 2 outs of the first Angel no-hitter since Mike Witt in 1984.

Um, no. I don't care what MLB passes out for official definitions, but Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo combined on a game where nobody got a hit. Yeah, Weaver gave up a run and lost it. So what? I'm not trying to call it a shutout, just a no-hitter.

Mark Langston and Mike Witt combined on one in 1990 as well. Even won that game, but they only want to count complete games for some reason. I don't get it. The team still threw a no-hitter.
