June 29, 1990: Stewart & Valenzuela throw no-hitters

leave a comment »

It was a rather remarkable Friday night, specially for those of us watching on ESPN:

“Oakland’s Dave Stewart and the Dodgers Fernando Valenzuela both throw no-hitters.

Stewart blanks the Blue Jays 5-0, and a few hours later Valenzuela beats the Cardinals 6-0.”

Great baseball night for two of the best pitchers of their time.

We remember Juan Marichal’s first game in the majors

The great Juan Marichal won 243 games with a sparkling 2.89 ERA.   He won 171 over 8 seasons, 1962-1969.

On this day in 1960, he pitched first game for the Giants pitching a one-hitter to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0.  

We lived in an American League city and never had a chance to see him pitch.   I did catch him in 1974 with the Red Sox.  He was old and not the same man who had won all of those games for the Giants.  Nevertheless, I can say that I saw Marichal and that awesome windup.
