On July 1, 1920, future Hall of Famer Walter Johnson no-hits the Boston Red Sox, 1-0. The Washington Senators’ ace strikes out 10 batters. Only an error by Bucky Harris with two outs in the ninth inning prevents Johnson from pitching a perfect game.
During the first game of a twin bill in front of 47,871 Tribe fans, Don Black retires the final ten A’s batters he faces to record the first no-hitter in the history of Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium. The crowd, the largest ever to witness a no-hitter, endures the rain and six walks as the Indians right-hander completes the 3-0 victory, the eighth no-no in franchise history.

Picked up off the scrap heap by the Brooklyn Dodgers just months after being given his unconditional release by the Double-A Milwaukee Brewers, starting pitcher Tex Carleton throws a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds at Crosley Field. Aside from making Brooklyn GM Larry MacPhail look like a genius, the 3 – 0 masterpiece maintains both Carleton’s and the Dodgers’ perfect start to 1940: Carleton at 2-and-0 and the Dodgers at a record-tying 9-and-0.
