Throwing multiple no-hitters in a year

Criddles Riddles

Washington Nationals pitching ace Max Scherzer became only the sixth pitcher in Major League Baseball history to throw two no-hitters in one season on Saturday with his 17-strike out 2-0 masterpiece against the Eastern Division champion New York Mets.

Here is today’s question: Who are the other five pitchers to throw two no-hitters in the same season and what year did they do it.

Yesterday’s answer: The four pitchers on the 1971 Baltimore Orioles who won 20 or more games were Dave McNally — 21, Mike Cuellar — 20, Pat Dobson — 20, Jim Palmer — 20.
