On September 12, 1964 — Baltimore Orioles southpaw Frank Bertaina records his first major league victory when he tosses a one-hitter to beat the A’s at Memorial Stadium, 1-0. The losing pitcher Bob Meyer, who yields the game’s lone run on a Jackie Brandt sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, also gives up just one hit in his complete-game effort in the seventh double one-hitter in baseball history.

The Orioles will have only 19 official at-bats in the game. They had 3 Sacrifice Hits, 1 Sacrifice fly and Brooks Robinson grounded into a double play.
