On April 23, 1964, At Colt Stadium Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt .45s becomes the first major leaguer to hurl a nine-inning no-hitter and lose the game. The knuckleballing right-hander goes down to defeat, 1-0. Johnson throws widly on Pete Rose’s bunt attempt, and Rose was allowed to take second base and after a ground out, Second baseman Nellie Fox, usually a reliable defensive player, commits a critical run-scoring error on Vada Pinson’s groundball.
Joe Nuxhall, did his part for the Reds, he came out for the bottom of the ninth, and got the first two outs quickly. Pete Runnels grounded the first for what should have been the third out, but Deron Johnson misplayed the ball. Houston was unable to take advantage of that second life, however, as Nuxhall struck out John Weekly to end the game.
