  • Don Black started his no-hitter by walking Eddie Joost and Barney McCosky, and the A's had runners at second and third with two outs before Black retired Sam Chapman on a groundout to end the threat.
  • Because of walks, Black pitched with at least one runner on base in the first four innings and five of the first six before retiring the final 10 batters in a row.
  • Black was an alcoholic who enjoyed his best season in 1947 after Indians owner Bill Veeck encouraged Black to join Alcoholics Anonymous whose fraternity celebrated Don Black Day a month after he threw his no-hitter.
  • Among no-hit pitchers who started at least 100 games in their career, Black's career 80 ERA+ is the worst.
  • This was the first of three no-hitters caught by Jim Hegan (Bob Lemon vs. Tigers on June 30, 1948 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit; Bob Feller vs. Tigers on July 1, 1951 at Cleveland Stadium).

Did You Know?
  • This was the third of three career no-hitters thrown by Bob Feller who became just the third pitcher to throw three no-hitters in a career and the first to throw all three in the modern era (vs. White Sox on April 16, 1940 at Comiskey Park I in Chicago; vs. Yankees on April 30, 1946 at Yankee Stadium I in New York).
  • Despite retiring the first nine Tigers on five grounders, two flies, and two strikeouts, Feller had to convince pitching coach Mel Harder that he was fine after Harder told Feller he didn't "look too good," probably because Feller was throwing mostly sliders and curveballs and few fastballs.
  • The Tigers tied the game at 1-1 in the fourth inning on an error, stolen base and Feller error, and sacrifice fly by George Kell. The Indians plated the eventual winning run in the bottom of the eighth on a Sam Chapman triple followed by a Luke Easter single.
  • The win was Feller's 219th, the most among active pitchers in 1951.
  • Feller is one of six pitchers in big league history to throw at least three no-hitters, along with Nolan Ryan (7), Sandy Koufax (4), Larry Corcoran (3), Cy Young (3), and Justin Verlander (3).
  • This was the third of three no-hitters caught by Jim Hegan (Don Black vs. Athletics on July 10, 1947 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit; Bob Lemon vs. Tigers on June 30, 1948 at Tiger Stadium).

Did You Know?
  • This was the first of Allie Reynolds' no-hitters in 1951 (vs. Red Sox on September 28 at Yankee Stadium I in New York).
  • A stiff wind blowing in from Lake Erie most likely saved Reynolds' no-hitter and shutout when a Sam Chapman drive to left in the seventh inning was caught at the wall by Hank Bauer.
  • This was the first of three no-hitters caught by Yogi Berra (Allie Reynolds vs. Red Sox on September 28, 1951 at Yankee Stadium I; Don Larsen vs. Dodgers on October 8, 1956 at Yankee Stadium I).
  • Berra is the second catcher and one of four to have caught two no-hitters thrown by the same pitcher in the same season (Ernie Lombardi and Johnny Vander Meer, 1938; Carlos Ruiz and Roy Halladay, 2010; Wilson Ramos and Max Scherzer, 2015).

Did You Know?
  • Siebert played first base in college, then outfield in his first two minor league seasons because his father, a former professional pitching prospect who suffered an arm injury, didn't want Sonny to pitch. A broken ankle limited Siebert to pitching batting practice and coaches encouraged him to focus on becoming a pitcher.
  • As Siebert was leaving for the game his wife teased him about his recent performances, prompting him to promise if she'd "get off his back" he'd throw a no-hitter.
  • This was the first of two no-hitters caught by Joe Azcue (Clyde Wright vs. Athletics on July 3, 1970 at Anaheim Stadium).

  • The game became a beanball war between Cleveland starter Sonny Siebert and Dean Chance when Siebert knocked down Harmon Killebrew with a pitch in the fourth inning and Chance retaliated by knocking down Tony Horton.
  • Siebert hit Chance with a pitch in the fifth and the two had to be separated by Horton.

  • Bosman tossed a one-hitter for the Washington Senators against the Minnesota Twins on August 13, 1970 in which Cesar Tovar led off with a bunt single to third before Bosman retired the next 27 batters without allowing another hit.

  • Dennis Eckersley walked the third batter he faced, then retired 19 straight before tossing a wild pitch on a third strike to Bobby Bonds in the eighth inning that put Bonds on first.
  • The Indians turned a double play to end the inning, then Eckersley retired three in the ninth to cap off his no-hitter.
  • He received a $3,500 bonus and catcher Ray Fosse earned $1,500.
  • In three starts between May 25 and June 3, Eckersley allowed only two hits in 27 innings to the Mariners, Angels, and Mariners again, and had a hitless streak of 22 1/3 innings between a Larry Milbourne fifth-inning single on May 25 and Ruppert Jones' home run in the bottom of the sixth inning on June 3.
  • In the start prior to his no-hitter against the Mariners, Eckersley threw 12 innings and finished the 2-1 win with 7 2/3 hitless innings to earn his fourth victory of the year.
  • During his hitless streak, Eckersley retired 34 straight batters before walking Dave Collins in the bottom of the fourth on June 3.

Time of Game: 2:09
Did You Know?
  • Barker's perfect game was the first perfecto since A's pitcher Catfish Hunter tossed one on May 8, 1968 against the Twins at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
  • The attendance of 7,290 was the lowest to see a perfect game since Hunter pitched his in front of only 6,298 fans, the lowest attendance to see a perfect game in the 20th century.
  • According to Indians pitching coach Dave Duncan, Barker threw 60 curves among his 103 pitches and 45 were strikes.
  • Barker didn't strike out any of the first 10 Blue Jays he faced, but fanned 11 of the last 17, all swinging, and finished with a season-high.
  • He never had more than two balls on any of the 27 batters he faced.
  • Among no-hit pitchers where data is available, Barker's 81.6 strike percentage is the best for a pitcher who started and completed the game.
  • This was the first of two no-hitters caught by Ron Hassey (Dennis Martinez vs. Dodgers on July 28, 1991 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles). He's the only multi-no-hit catcher to go at least 10 years between no-hitters.

  • This was the first no-hitter of Dave Stieb's career after he threw five one-hitters from 1988-1989, including in his last two starts of '88, both of which went 8 2/3 innings before he allowed his first and only hit.
  • It's the first modern era season to feature seven no-hitters and one of only four (1991, 2012, 2015).
