On August 14, 1971, future Hall of Famer Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals pitches the first no-hitter of his career. Gibson strikes out 10 batters and also drives in three runs in an 11-0 whitewash of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The no-hitter is the first in the history of Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium and the first no-hitter in Pittsburgh in 64 years. The 11-0 score was the largest margin of victory ever in franchise history for a no-hitter. It is made possible thanks to outstanding defensive plays made by outfielder Jose Cruz and third baseman Joe Torre.
