Did You Know?
  • This is the only modern-era no-hitter thrown at Baker Bowl.
  • Phillies leadoff man Dode Paskert was credited with a hit in the first inning when his popup dropped untouched on the infield between Giants first baseman Fred Merkle and catcher Art Wilson, but it was later changed to an error when sportswriters from Philadelphia and New York insisted that Merkle had touched the ball. Merkle himself agreed to sign an affidavit to that effect if necessary.
  • The New York Sun wasn't buying it, though, and reported Tesreau's win as a one-hitter.
  • Paskert made it to second base and tried to score on a wild pitch, but Wilson was able to retrieve it in time to throw to Tesreau and nip Paskert at the plate.
  • It was the first of two no-hitters caught by Art Wilson (Claude Hendrix vs. Federal League Pittsburgh Rebels on May 15, 1915 at Exposition Park III in Pittsburgh).
