Chicago American Giants’ Dougherty notches no-no day after Johnson

Charles “Pat” Dougherty threw a Negro Leagues no-hitter for the Chicago American Giants a day after a teammate threw one, 103 years ago today.

On Monday, June 9, 1913, Dougherty no-hit Paterson Smart Set for an 8-0 win. Dougherty struck out seven and walked one.

The previous day, Louis Decatur “Dicta” Johnson no-hit the same squad for a 9-0 win. It might be the only time in major baseball history that a team notched back-to-back no-hitters.
