On June 22, 1947, Cincinnati Reds hurler Ewell “The Whip” Blackwell comes within two outs of pitching his second straight no-hitter. Blackwell, who had hurled a no-hitter on June 18, surrenders a one-out, ninth inning single to Eddie Stanky. In 1938, Johnny Vander Meer had pitched consecutive no-hitters for the Reds.
