Nolan Ryan’s 5th No-Hitter – September 26, 1981

As we celebrate ‘Nolan Ryan Day here at ’30-YOC’, we will pay homage to Ryan’s incredible 7 No-Hitters!!

Nolan Ryan’s 5th No-Hitter – September 26, 1981

Where: Astrodome, Houston

Attendance: 32,115

Time of Game: 2 hours, 46 minutes

Result: Astros 5, Dodgers 0

Notes from the game:  Ryan’s first no-hitter in the National League took a bit longer than his earlier ones, but that is because his offense was giving hm a ton of support.  And that was all Ryan needed to capture his 5th career no-hitter.  Going 9 innings while striking out 11 and walking 3, Ryan dominated an All-star filled Dodgers lineup.
