Box Score of No Hitter by Warren Spahn

How odd that the fifth winningest pitcher in major league history had to wait until he was thirty-nine years old to get his first gem. Warren Spahn was simply dominant and his breaking ball never seemed to miss. Every Phillie in the lineup, except Bobby Malkmus, was struck out at least once and Spahn came within two bases on balls of a perfect game.

"A sore arm is like a headache or a toothache. It can make you feel bad, but if you just forget about it and do what you have to do, it will go away." - Warren Spahn
