This day in baseball: Feller’s second no-hitter

Indians pitcher Bob Feller threw the second no-hitter of his career on April 30, 1946.  He struck out eleven batters (and allowed five walks) as the Indians defeated the Yankees, 1-0.  Feller said of the game, “The no-hitter on opening day in Chicago is the one that gets all the attention. But my no-hitter at Yankee Stadium was against a much better team than the White Sox. There was no comparison. I had to pitch to Tommy Henrich, Charlie Keller and Joe DiMaggio in the ninth inning to get the Yankees out.”  The lone run in the game came on a home run by Frankie Hayes.
