Ken Forsch, Jack Morris throw no-nos on this date

Two no-hitters were thrown on this date in 1979 and 1984.

On April 7, 1979, the Houston Astros’ Ken Forsch no-hit the Atlanta Braves 6-0 in a historic moment at the Astrodome based on family ties. His brother, the St. Louis Cardinals’ Bob Forsch, had thrown a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies in 1978, making the duo the first major league brothers to pitch no-hitters. (Bob added a second no-hitter in 1983.)

On this date in 1984, the Detroit Tigers’ Jack Morris tossed a no-no against the Chicago White Sox for a 4-0 win at Comiskey Park.
