June

  • June 15: MLB releases a memo relating to foreign substances and pitch doctoring, announcing "a uniform standard for the consistent application of the rules, including regular checks of all pitchers regardless of whether an opposing club's manager makes a request." Included in MLB's announcement were mandatory checks of all pitchers by umpires, with any player found to have a foreign substance immediately ejected and suspended for 10 games.[77]
  • June 18–30: 2021 College World Series
  • June 20: Father's Day
  • June 24: At Dodger Stadium, four Chicago Cubs pitcher combine to no-hit the Los Angeles Dodgers 4–0. Zach Davies pitches the first six innings, followed by Ryan Tepera, Andrew Chafin and Craig Kimbrel pitching one inning each. The no-hitter is the 17th in Cubs history, and their first-ever combined no-hitter. It is also the seventh no-hitter on the season, tying the modern-day record held jointly by the 1990, 1991 and 2012 seasons.[78]
  • June 25: In the first game of a doubleheader at Citi Field, Aaron Nola of the Philadelphia Phillies strikes out 10 consecutive batters in the Phillies' 2–1, 8-inning loss to the New York Mets. After hitting Jeff McNeil with a pitch and allowing a double to Francisco Lindor to begin the game, Nola strikes out the entire Mets lineup, including Michael Conforto twice. He leaves the game with 12 strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. Nola ties Tom Seaver's 51-year record for most consecutive strikeouts in one game; Seaver, as a Met, had struck out the last 10 San Diego Padres he faced in an April 22, 1970 game at Citi Field's predecessor, Shea Stadium.[79]

  • August 11: At Wrigley Field, Corbin Burnes of the Milwaukee Brewers strikes out 10 consecutive Chicago Cubs in a 10-0 Milwaukee victory. He begins the streak by striking out Frank Schwindel leading off the second inning; after he strikes out out Schwindel a second time to begin the fifth, a single by Matt Duffy ends the streak. Burnes becomes the third pitcher to strike out 10 consecutive batters in a game, Tom Seaver having set the record on April 22, 1970 and Aaron Nola having tied it on June 25 of this season.[81]
  • August 14: At Chase Field, Tyler Gilbert of the Arizona Diamondbacks no-hits the San Diego Padres 7–0 in his first Major League start. Gilbert, who had made three scoreless appearances with Arizona earlier in the season, walks three and strikes out five in pitching the third no-hitter in Diamondbacks history, and the eighth on the season, tying a single-season record set in 1884, the first year overhand pitching was allowed. Gilbert becomes the first pitcher since Bobo Holloman in 1953, and one of four overall, to pitch a no-hitter in his first Major League start. Ted Breitenstein and Bumpus Jones were the other two, having done so in 1891 and 1892 respectively.[82]
