Weekend games in September weren’t always so gloomy for the Orioles.
Hoyt Wilhelm held the New York Yankees in check on Saturday, Sept. 20, 1958, recording eight strikeouts against two walks in the Orioles’ 1-0 victory at Memorial Stadium. His was the first of five no-hitters in Orioles history.
Gus Triandos powered the O’s to the win with his career-high 30th home run of the season in the seventh inning.
Don Larsen – just two seasons removed from a perfect Game 5 in the 1956 World Series – pitched six innings before yielding to Bobby Shantz, who took the loss for the Yankees.
The Orioles finished the 1958 season in sixth place in the eight-team American League with a record of 74-79.
