The Milwaukee Braves’ Warren Spahn threw his second of two no-hitters, 55 years ago today

Spahn on Friday, April 28, 1961, no-hit the San Francisco Giants for a 1-0 victory at Milwaukee County Stadium. Just two Giants reached first base on walks, but each was immediately sent back to the dugout on a double play. The Braves’ sole error was on a foul ball behind the plate.
