YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1914 George Davis of the Braves tosses a no-hitter to blank to Phillies, 7 – 0. He’s the first pitcher to throw a no-hitter at Fenway Park… The Braves were in Fenway because the Miracle Braves were drawing crowds too big for their own park.

1945 Continuing with firsts – the first Canadian pitcher to throw a no-hitter was Dick Fowler, who beat the Browns, 1 – 0. It was the only win of the year for the Athletic pitcher.

1948 Dodger Rex Barney blanks the Giants, 2 – 0, without allowing a hit. In the rain.

1965 It’s No-Hitter Day – but the best one was Sandy Koufax’s perfect game, topping the Cubs, 1 – 0.

1998 Alex Gonzalez has a rough day – six at bats, six times striking out. Cleveland won, 6 – 3, over Toronto. Gonzalez left six on base in the extra inning loss.

2004 Royal third baseman Joe Randa goes six for six and scores six runs in a 26 – 5 win over Detroit. Only eight players have ever scored 6 runs in a game…

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1886 Washington purchases five players from Hartford, including catcher Connie Mack.

1898 Louisville purchased Topsy Hartsel from Grand Rapids of the Interstate League.

1899 Cincinnati purchased Sam Crawford from Grand Rapids of the Western League.

1902 Boston purchased Ed Abbaticchio from Nashville.
