    Bumpus Jones.

    No hitter in first career game in 1892. Only played one more year after that. Career record of 2-4 record and a 7.99 ERA

    Honorable mention:

    Jose Jimenez 24-44, 4.92 ERA. Last two seasons: 3-17, 6.07 ERA

    edit: Why does this answer get so many thumbs down. According to sabermetrician Bill James, Jones edges out Holloman for the distinction of mathematically least likely pitcher ever to have thrown a no-hitter in the major leagues.

    Clearly Bud Smith.

    The guy only had 1 MLB season in total. He went 7-8 with a 4.95 ERA and only 81 strikeouts. Who throws a no-hitter his rookie season and then retires?

    PS-- I'm also a Cardinals fan

    Eric Milton..

    I was SUPPOSED to be at that game (9/11/99).. but my family decided to go on the 12th.

    I also would have had front row seats right behind the Twins dugout at that game.

    Anywho, link to his career numbers.. They're not pretty.

    Probably that guy who pitched one and lost it in 1990 for the Yankees.
