Happy 78th birthday to Juan Marichal, who threw a no-hitter for the San Francisco Giants in 1963.

On Saturday, June 15, 1963, Marichal no-hit the Houston Colt .45’s for a 1-0 win at Candlestick Park. Marichal walked two and struck out five in the victory, which was one of his league-leading 25 wins of the season.

Opposing pitcher Dick Drott had a one-hit shutout going into the eighth before the Giants notched the game’s sole run on a pair of doubles.
