Tuesday Tananas: No-Hitter Leftovers

No!.jpgWhen you look at the dozen no-hitters thrown against the Tigers since 1902, you see three Hall of Famers, one future Hall of Famer and you see, ahem, Matt Garza.

On Aug. 5, 1940, the Browns’ John Whitehead no-hit the Tigers over six innings at Sportsman’s Park. It was the second game of a doubleheader and most likely, the game was called due to darkness (though the box score doesn’t indicate this). The Browns won 4-0.

What’s interesting about this game is the OPS numbers put up by four Tigers players: Hank Greenberg (1.027), Rudy York (.999), Barney McCoskey (.931) and Pinky Higgins (.823).

Discuss.
