Ken Johnson (right-handed pitcher)

No-hit game

Pitching for the Houston Colt .45s on April 23, 1964, Johnson gave up no hits in a 1 0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. The game's only run was scored after Pete Rose reached second base on an error (by Johnson himself), went to third on a ground-out, and scored on a second error. The following week he appeared on the television show I've Got a Secret where panelist Henry Morgan described the loss as "the saddest story of the year".

Baseball career

He pitched for the Kansas City Athletics (1958 61), Cincinnati Reds (1961), Houston Colt .45/Astros (1962 65), Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves (1965 69), New York Yankees (1969), Chicago Cubs (1969), and Montreal Expos (1970).
