The Cleveland Naps’ (Indians’) Addie Joss threw the second of his two no-hitters, both against the Chicago White Sox, 109 years ago today.
On Wednesday, April 20, 1910, Joss no-hit the Sox for a 1-0 victory at South Side Park.
It was his second no-no against Chicago. On Friday, October 2, 1908, Joss threw a perfect game against the White Sox at home at League Park.
With the pair of gems, Joss became the first person to throw two no-hitters against the same team. The San Francisco Giants’ Tim Lincecum duplicated the feat in 2013 and 2014, no-hitting the San Diego Padres in each.
