Retired 1990[6]

Terry Mulholland pitched the eighth no-hitter of the 1990 season on August 15 as the Phillies beat the San Francisco Giants, 6-0. The season's eighth no-hitter surpassed the modern record of seven set in 1917 and 1908. Mulholland's no-hitter was the first in the 20th century by a Phillies' pitcher in Philadelphia, and was also the first nine-inning no-hitter pitched at Veterans Stadium. The game was played in two hours and nine minutes and attendance was 32,156.[7]
