This day in baseball: No-hitter cut short

Rube Waddell pitched five innings of no-hit, shutout baseball on August 15, 1905 at Columbia Park in Philadelphia.  His effort led the A’s to victory over the St. Louis Browns, 2-0, as he struck out nine of the fifteen batters he faced.  A sudden, wet downpour shortened the performance, however, and Waddell was not credited with a no-hitter.
