On June 21, 1964 On Father’s Day at Shea Stadium, Jim Bunning fans 10, drives in two runs, and pitches the first perfect game (excluding Don Larsen’s 1956 World Series effort and Harvey Haddix’s 1959 extra-inning loss) since Charlie Robertson’s on April 30, 1922. Philadelphia beats the Mets, 6 – 0. Bunning also becomes the first pitcher to win no-hitters in both leagues, and Gus Triandos becomes the first catcher to catch a no-hitter in each league. Bunning throws just 90 pitches in winning his second no-hitter. The next time Bunning faces the Mets he will shut them out. The Mets don’t fare much better in the nitecap as 18-year-old rookie Rick Wise wins his first game and gives up just three hits for an 8 – 2 win. The Phils increase their National League lead to two games over the Giants.
