On August 10, 1969, Mike Cuellar of the Baltimore Orioles extends his streak of consecutive batters retired to 35, before surrendering a ninth inning single to Minnesota’s Cesar Tovar. Tovar’s hit also breaks up Cuellar’s bid for a no-hitter. Earlier in the season, Tovar broke up the no-hit attempt of another Baltimore pitcher – Dave McNally.
