On April 17, 1969 – – At Connie Mack Stadium, Bill Stoneman of the Montreal Expos pitches a 7 – 0 no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies in only the ninth game of the Expos’ existence. Rusty Staub hits a home run with three doubles and three RBI to pace Stoneman’s gem.

Bill Stoneman, who had never thrown a complete game in the major leagues, tosses a no-hitter. The 25 year-old right-hander, the future GM of the Angels, will throw another no-hit game in 1972 against the Mets.
