Jim Bunning threw the only perfect game in Phillies history.
The Philadelphia Phillies are a Major League Baseball franchise based in . They play in the National League East division. Also known in their early years as the "Philadelphia Quakers", pitchers for the Phillies have thrown nine separate no-hitters in franchise history. A no-hitter is officially recognized by Major League Baseball only "when a pitcher (or pitchers) retires each batter on the opposing team during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings". No-hitters of less than nine complete innings were previously recognized by the league as official; however, several rule alterations in 1991 changed the rule to its current form. A no-hitter is rare enough that four teams in Major League Baseball have never had a pitcher accomplish the feat.

Of the nine no-hitters pitched by Phillies players, three have been won by a score of 6–0, more common than any other result. The largest margin of victory in a Phillies no-hitter was ten runs, in a 10–0 win by Chick Fraser. Two Phillies players have won their no-hitters by a one-run margin; Charlie Ferguson's no-hitter, the first in franchise history, was a 1–0 victory, as was the most recent no-hitter, thrown by Kevin Millwood in 2003. Two pitchers to throw no-hitters for the Phillies have been left-handed: Johnny Lush (in 1906) and Terry Mulholland (in 1990). The other seven pitchers were right-handed. No pitcher has thrown more than one no-hitter in a Phillies uniform, though some, including Hall of Famermarker Jim Bunning, have pitched more than one in their careers. The longest interval between Phillies no-hitters was between the games pitched by Lush and Bunning, encompassing 58 years, 1 month, and 20 days. Conversely, the shortest interval between no-hitters was between Mulholland's and Tommy Greene's games, with a total of merely 9 months and 8 days.

The umpire is also an integral part of any no-hitter. The task of the umpire in a baseball game is to make any decision "which involves judgment, such as, but not limited to, whether a batted ball is fair or foul, whether a pitch is a strike or a ball, or whether a runner is safe or out… [the umpire's judgment on such matters] is final."{{cite web|url=|title=Umpires: Rules of Interest||publisher=Major League Baseball|accessdate=2009-02-22}} Part of the duties of the umpire making calls at home plate includes defining the [[strike zone]], which "is defined as that area over [[home plate|homeplate]] ''(sic)'' the upper limit of which is a horizontal line at the midpoint between the top of the shoulders and the top of the uniform pants, and the lower level is a line at the hollow beneath the kneecap." These calls define every baseball game and are therefore integral to the completion of any no-hitter. A different umpire presided over each of the Phillies' nine no-hitters, including [[Wes Curry]], who created Major League Baseball's [[catcher interference]] rule.{{cite book| title = Baseball and Philosophy: Thinking Outside the Batter's Box, Pgs 98-99 | last=Bronson | first=Eric | url= | accessdate = 2008-06-14 |isbn=0812695569}} One [[perfect game]], a special subcategory of no-hitter, has been pitched in Phillies history. This feat was achieved by Bunning in 1964 and was the first perfect game in the [[National League]] since 1880. As defined by Major League Baseball, "[in] a perfect game, no batter reaches any base during the course of the game." ==Key== {| class="wikitable" border="1" |- |bgcolor="#ffffbb"|  ¶  | Indicates a [[perfect game]] |- |  £  | Pitcher was left-handed |- |  *  | Member of the [[National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum]] |} ==Table== [[Image:MG 8291 Kevin Millwood.jpg|thumb|right|upright|The most recent no-hitter in Phillies history was pitched by [[Kevin Millwood]].|alt=Kevin Millwood, delivering a pitch from the mound for the Texas Rangers]] {| class="wikitable sortable" style="text-align:center" border="1" |- !
