1990 Headline: Two No-Hitters In One Day!!!

1990 Headline:  Two No-Hitters In One Day!!!

I can recall this day like it was yesterday… 

On this day in 1990, both Dave Stewart of the Oakland Athletics and Fernando Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Dodgers threw no-hitters.

I remember checking the box scores the day after these two no-hitters and thought how cool it was to see two on the same page of the paper…

Let’s look a little closer at these two ‘No-No’s’:

Dave Stewart – On the road and in front of a crowd of just under 50,000, the A’s were in Toronto to battle the Blue Jays.  Stewart pitched a gem while striking out 12 batters ang giving up just 3 walks.  He threw 115 pitches during the game it took just 147 minutes for his A’s team to beat the Blue Jays 5-0.

Fernando Valenzuela - At home and facing the Cardinals, Valenzuela was awesome as he and his Dodgers teammates beat St. Louis 6-0 in 161 minutes.  Valenzuela was brilliant – allowing just 3 base runners while striking out 7 batters.  For the game, he threw 119 pitches.  He also went 1-for-4 at the plate.

2 great pitchers.  1 amazing accomplishment.  Baseball history!!!
