With a one out in the ninth inning, Horace Clarke of the New York Yankees spoils Joe Niekro’s bid for a no-hitter at Tiger Stadium. The Detroit Tigers knuckleballer would settle for a one-hitter, winning 5-0. It is the third time in one month that Horace Clarke broke up a no-hitter in the ninth inning, having spoiled history for Jim Rooker of the Kansas City Royals on June 4th and Sonny Seibert of the Boston Red Sox on June 19th.
