The amazing Nolan Ryan pitched his 6th no-hitter in Oakland.  

Ryan pitched a no-hitter for 3 different teams (Angels, Astros & Rangers) and 3 different decades (two in 1973, 1974, 1975, 1981 & 1990).

On a personal note, I did not watch the whole game.    It was a Pacific time game, or it started in Texas at 9 pm.   I fell asleep after 3 or 4 innings and did not watch it.  

I heard about it the next morning when when the alarm went off at 6 am.   It was one of the leading stories on the radio!    

Ryan flirted with no-hitters a couple of time in 1989,  his first year in Texas.   In fact, I was at one of those games when he took a perfect game into the 9th, or 25 outs!  Then he gave up a single!  

The amazing Mr Ryan!
