1876: George Washington Bradley of St. Louis Brown Stockings pitches the first no-hitter in major-league baseball history in a 2-0 win over the Hartford Dark Blues. Less than a year earlier Joe Borden of the Philadelphia White Stockings of the National Association had pitched the first no-hitter in professional baseball history, but the earlier no-hitter is not recognized by MLB today.
