Sometimes players are credited with breaking up a no-hitter if they have their team’s only hit (or hits) in the game. By this definition, Cesar Tovar, Billy Williams, and Eddie Milner hold the record by each having broken up five no-hitters. However, in only three of these instances was the no-hitter broken up in the ninth inning—by Milner in 1983 and by Tovar twice in 1969.
The most frequent spoiler of the expansion era is Horace Clarke of the New York Yankees, who broke up three no-hitters in the ninth inning, all within a month in 1970. Nelson Liriano of the Toronto Blue Jays broke up two no-hitters within a week in April of 1989.
It's two players. In Williams' case some of those occurances were not 1-hitters.Atrophying Testicles wrote:Is it three players then? Tovar, Williams and Milner?
