1971: We remember Bob Gibson's no-hitter
What man would you pick to pitch game 7 of the World Series? My choice would be Bob Gibson, the great right-hander of the Cardinals in the 1960s. He won the seventh game in the 1964 and 1967 World Series. He lost game 7 in 1968 to Mickey Lolich of the Tigers.On this day in 1971, Gibson pitched a no hitter against the Pirates:“The Pittsburgh Pirates, Gibson’s opponent on August 14, had recently given “Bullet” Bob quite a bit of a trouble. Four years earlier, his leg had been broken by a line drive hit by star Pirates outfielder Roberto Clemente.In 1970, the year of his second Cy Young Award, the Pirates beat Gibson three straight times.On this day in 1971, however, Gibson got his revenge, both on the mound and at the plate. He threw 10 strikeouts and walked just three batters, as well as contributing a two-run single in the eighth.The only threat to his no-hitter came when Milt May launched a fly ball 390 feet to left-center in the seventh, but Cardinal Jose Cruz tracked it down.With two outs in the ninth inning, the Pittsburgh crowd stood and cheered as Gibson struck out slugging star Willie Stargell for the first and only no-hitter of his long and impressive career.”Gibson won 251 games with a 2.91 career ERA! He pitched 56 shutouts with 255 complete games. In 1968, he went 22-9, with a 1.12 ERA and 13 shutouts!Awesome pitcher!
