Carl Hubbell pitches a no-hitter against Pittsburgh at the Polo Grounds. Hubbell’s only difficult inning comes in the fifth when Pirate pinch hitter Harry Riconda lines directly to Giant left fielder Chick Fullis, who drops the ball for an error. Sparky Adams follows with a ground ball to shortstop Travis Jackson, who fumbles it for another error. Hubbell then strikes out Lloyd Waner and starts an inning-ending double play on Paul Waner‘s smash back to the box. Hubbell’s good friend and long-time collaborator, Mel Ott, supports the great left-hander with two home runs. The Giants win, 11-0.
