Veteran Bob Feller pitches the third no-hitter of his career, tying the record of Cy Young and Larry Corcoran, as he beats Detroit’s Bob Cain, 2 – 1. Feller loses his shutout in the fourth when Johnny Lipon reaches on an error, swipes second base, goes to third on a errant pickoff, and scores on a sacrifice fly. Rookie Bob Chakales shuts out the Tigers in the nightcap, 2 – 0, for Cleveland’s 10th straight win over Detroit. Detroit has scored eight runs in the ten losses.
