Fans at Candlestick Park are treated to two No-Hitters in 24 hours. The first No-Hitter comes out of a Hall of Fame pitchers’ duel as Gaylord Perry of the San Francisco Giants gets the best of Bob Gibson and the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 for his only career No-Hitter. The following day, Ray Washburn returns the favor, striking out eight as the Cards win 2-0.
