1. No-Hitter for Gibson Marker
Inscription.  Bob Gibson no-hit the Pirates with an 11-0 win at Pittsburgh. Jose Cruz' outstanding running catch of Milt May's 400 ft. drive to center field in the seventh, and Joe Torre's leaping grab at third off Dave Cash's grounder in the eighth helped preserve the gem.
