    Johnny Vander Meer No Hitter Box Score.

    "A truly dominant no-hitter in which only three opposing hitters reached first base and none of them ever went further. Johnny Vander Meer faced the minimum through three then then walked Gene Moore at the top of the fourth. Johnny Cooney hit a deep foul which was caught for the first out and Moore took off for second, but was gunned down when he fell returning back to first. Tony Cuccinello walked in the fifth, but was also gunned down leading off the base a little too far. The only other batter to reach base also walked in the fifth, but was left on base."

    "Before the no-hitter against Boston on June eleventh that year I was just a rookie that nobody, but Bill McKechnie knew." - Johnny Vander Meer

    LizzieMaine Bartender

    In 1965, a forgettable Red Sox righthander named Dave Morehead no-hit the Indians in front of about 1200 people in a meaningless September game at Fenway Park. His next start, against the Angels, he was knocked out of the box in the second inning. "ATTABOY, VANDERMEER!" bellowed a voice in the crowd.

    Giants Christy Mathewson, who, in 1901, became the first rookie in the modern era to throw a no-no, pitches his second career no-hitter, beating the Orphans at Chicago's West Side Grounds, 1-0. Matty and Mordecai Brown match hitless innings until the top of the ninth when the New York reaches the future Hall of Famer for two hits.

    Joe McCarthy and Lou Gehrig are both thrown out of the game,
    with the Yankee manager being suspended for three games.
    Fortunately, his first baseman isn't and the 'Iron Horse's' consecutive
    game streak stays intact at 1,249 games.
