Happy 136th birthday to the New York Giants’ Red Ames, who threw nine innings of no-hit ball on Opening Day in 1909 before giving up a hit in the 10th and losing the game in the 13th.
With MLB and the Players Association approving seven-inning doubleheaders for the (likely short) remainder of the 2020 season starting today, we thought we’d look at the uncredited seven-inning no-hitters thrown over baseball’s history.
The Baltimore Black Sox’s Joe Strong tossed an 11-inning Eastern Colored League one-hitter, 93 years ago.
Jim Bibby threw the first no-hitter in Texas Rangers history, 47 years ago today.
The Boston Red Sox’s “Smoky” Joe Wood and the Cincinnati Reds’ George Culver threw no-hitters on this date.
Today is the only day on the calendar in which we can celebrate multiple perfect games, with Dennis Martínez and Kenny Rogers both tossing July 28 perfectos.
