On September 18, 1968 — After being no-hit yesterday by Giants right-hander Gaylord Perry, the Cardinal hurler Ray Washburn returns the favor by no-hitting San Francisco, 2-0, making it the first time in major league history the feat had been accomplished in successive games. The 30 year-old right-hander is the fourth Redbird pitcher to throw a no-no in franchise history, and the first since Lon Warneke’s gem in 1941.
