The massive right-hander allows a leadoff single to Terry Harper before retiring the next 27 batters in a row. In 1973, Bibby had thrown a no-hitter for the Texas Rangers against the Oakland A’s.
Atlanta Braves set a major league record by using five relief pitchers in the ninth inning of their game against the St. Louis Cardinals
