Earl Wilson of the Boston Red Sox throws a No-Hitter in a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels. Wilson is the first black pitcher to throw a no-hitter and the second overall. Bo Belinsky, the losing pitcher, had thrown a no-hitter for the Angels in May. Earl Wilson, who allowed four walks with five strikeouts, helped his own cause with a home run in the third inning.
