Would this count as a no-hitter?

Just had a game called due to rain with 2 outs in the top of the 6th. Chris Carpenter was pitching a no-hitter at the time. It's listed as one on the accomplishment page.

No, it shouldn't count:

No-hitters not recognized by the major leagues | Baseball no-hitters at NoNoHitters.com

Maybe send this one to Markus?

Before 1991 it would have. There was a rule change at that point that said that for it to officially count that the game has to go at least 9 innings.

Seriously Marcus, don’t change it.

The OOTP record book is now better than the major league record book.

Of all the dumb things MLB has done in regard to the record book, this is the dumbest. It was advocated by an equally dumb commissioner, Fay Vincent. I imagine it’s just a matter of time before someone comes to their senses and MLB re-instates these.

If you pitch a complete game and give up no hits, you know what that is? It’s a no-hitter!!

Two cases, both involving the Red Sox.

Matt Young, 1992 at Cleveland. He walks seven, Cleveland steals six bases, scores twice and wins 2-1 despite being no-hit. As the game is at Cleveland, the Indians don’t need to bat in the bottom of the ninth. Young pitches eight no-hit innings and it’s not a no-hitter. Really? If the Red Sox scored two more runs and Young goes one more hitless inning (I know, it’s still a big “if”), then it counts? So maybe he loses a no-hitter because his team couldn’t score enough or because of who the home team is.
Senseless. Utterly senseless.

Devern Hansack, 1992 vs. Baltimore. Hansack goes five no-hit innings and it rains. It’s an official game, the Red Sox win 9-0, but it’s not a no-hitter?

Does baseball give him credit for a complete game? Yes.

Why? Because it was, that’s why.

Does baseball give him credit for a shutout? Yes.

Why? Because it was, that’s why.

Does baseball give him credit for a no-hitter? No.

Why? Uuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmm, ahhhhhhhhh . . . because . . .because it’s not?????

I am a player in your fictional OOTP Universe . . . who plays OOTP in his spare time.

I want to say it was 1981 Len Barker (Cleveland Indians) pitched a 5 inning Perfect game. Game was called due to rain. Still in the record books.

I can see weather-shortened games not being called no-hitters, but losing a no-hitter on the road, like poor Andy Hawkins, should count.

I actually had this occur for my first no-hitter in a fictional game. My pitcher threw a no-hitter through 5 or 6 innings, rain came and washed away the game, it still credited him with a no-hitter (the first one in the league's history at the time). I found it a little odd because I never realized a rain-shortened game could count, since I always imagined you had to go the full game. But reading the above logic, it is a complete game and official so it should count. Just looks strange when they don't pitch the full 9 innings.
