Arlin threw an Eastern League no-hitter as a Phillies farmhand on July 25, 1967.
With the struggling young Padres, he led the NL with 19 losses in 1971 and 21 in
1972. On July 18, 1972, he had a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth when
Denny Doyle singled. That season, he also had a one-hit 1-0 victory, went 10 innings
allowing one hit before being relieved in another game, and had two other two-hitters.
Of his 34 career wins, 11 were shutouts. Arlin practiced dentistry while still an
active player. Arlin's grandfather, Harold Arlin
, was the first announcer to broadcast
a baseball game.
