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 Philadelphia’s 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.
