If you are a Major League pitcher and your nickname is "Smoke", you had better be able to back up that moniker - Dave Stewart threw hard, threw inside, and was easily able to back up his given nickname. The incredibly dependable backbone of the Oakland Athletics pitching staff during their championship years in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Smoke recorded 20 wins for four consecutive seasons, was part of three World Series championship teams (the 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers , 1989 Oakland Athletics and the 1993 Toronto Blue Jays ) and earned a World Series Most Valuable Player Award in 1989 after he won two of the four games, a 1.69 ERA, and a complete game shutout during Game 1 of the 1989 World Series . Author Damon Bruce in The Great Book of San Francisco / Bay Area Sports Lists (Page 68) picked a "Bay Area Baseball All-Time Dream Team" and for his starting rotation selected Dave Stewart third saying, "Smoke is a bad, bad man; if you stare back into his eyes, you're a goner."

On June 29, 1990 , Fernando Valenzuela no hit the St. Louis Cardinals at Dodger Stadium, the same exact day Dave Stewart no hit the Toronto Blue Jays . ESPN happened to broadcast both games that evening, back to back, and for the first time in Major League history baseball fans witnessed no hitters being thrown in both leagues on the same day. Baseball Almanac is honored to present this exclusive description of the Dave Stewart no-hitter researched and written by author Rich Westcott ( RichWestcott.com / Rich Westcott Books ), original text from No-Hitters (McFarland, 02/15/2000, 'Dave Stewart', Page 333):

Dave Stewart No Hitter (Box Score: 06-29-1990 )

Dave Stewart was headed for his fourth straight season as a 20-game winner when he drew the assignment on Friday, June 29 against the second place Toronto Blue Jays of the AL East at the Skydome. The 33-year-old righthander faced John Cerutti with a crowd of 49,817 in attendance.

The Blue Jays were one of the top offensive clubs in the American League. They entered the game leading the circuit in runs, were tired for second place in batting average, and were in second place in the AL East.

Stewart, who had won six straight games at the start of the season for the AL West's second place A's and owned a 9-6 record, had his work cut out for him. But he was up to the task as he struck out a season-high 12 and walked three. Stewart struck out the side once, and fanned two batters in three different innings. Toronto hit just six balls to the outfield.

The game began precariously as he walked the first two batters. Junior Felix drew a free pass leading off, but was thrown out by catcher Terry Steinbach trying to steal second. Stewart then gave a base on balls to Tony Fernandez , but struck out Kelly Gruber and got George Bell on a fly to left.

The veteran hurler struck out the side in the second, fanning Fred McGriff , John Olerud and Greg Myers . After getting Manny Lee on a grounder to third, he also whiffed Mookie Wilson and Felix in the third.

By then, the A's had chipped in with some offensive support, scoring twice in the top of the third when Dave Henderson followed a two-out walk to Rickey Henderson with a blast over the right-center field fence. It was Henderson's fourth home run in the last 11 games.

Rickey Henderson , who grew up in Oakland with Stewart, added his muscle to the fray in the fifth when he homered deep over the left field wall with Walt Weiss , who had singled, aboard. Weiss also scored the final run in the seventh when he doubled, went to third on a sacrifice bunt and came home on Rickey Henderson's sacrifice fly.

Stewart had no rough spots the rest of the way. In the fifth and sixth, no Blue Jay got the ball out of the infield. Bell lofted a fly to right with two outs in the seventh, and McGriff skied out to center leading off the eighth. Olerud and Myers followed as strikeout victims.

In the ninth, Stewart struck out Lee to open the inning. Then he struck out Wilson . Felix provided a momentary interruption when he walked, ending Stewart's streak of having retired 25 Blue Jays in a row. Stewart came back to retire Tony Fernandez on a fly to Dave Henderson in center.

Stewart's gem was complete. Later that night, Fernando Valenzuela would hurl a no-hitter for the Dodgers, marking the first time no-hitters were pitched in both leagues on the same day. Stewart wound up the season with a 22-11 record.

Besides being Major League twirlers, what do Barry Zito and Dave Stewart have in common? Each former pitcher led the American League in games started in an Oakland Athletics uniform four times (2001-2002-2005-2006 / 1988-1989-1990-1991, respectively), tied for most times leading the league in franchise history.
