On September 18, 1968, Ray Washburn of the St. Louis Cardinals pitches a no-hit game against the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park. Washburn wins a 2-0 decision, just one day after San Francisco’s Gaylord Perry hurled a no-hitter at Candlestick vs Bob Gibson. The performances by Washburn and Perry mark the first time that consecutive no-hitters have occurred in the same park…

Washburn stole Perry’s thunder, allowing just two balls to leave the infield in a no-hit 2-0 victory. It is the only occurrence of back-to-back no-hitters in the same series.
