Cleveland hurler Addie Joss etches his name into the history books again, tossing the second no-hitter of his career and his first that was not a perfect game, blanking the White Sox by a 1-0 score in Chicago.

The victory in the one hour and 40 minute game improved the Naps record to 4-1 on the season and was the club’s first shutout of eleven such official games this year. Joss struck out two and fielded his position well on the day, recording ten assists on his 27 outs over the course of the game. The contest gave him two of the three no-hitters in franchise history (Bob Rhoads, 1908).

Three White Sox batters reached base, with two coming on free passes and another on an error, and only runner made it to third base. Bill Bradley bobbled Freddy Parent’s hit in the second, pitcher “Doc” White drew a third inning walk, and Parent reached with a free pass in the fifth.

The lone Naps run came in the sixth, when Art Kruger blooped a single in back of second base with one out and came around to score on a two-out double over the left fielder’s head from Terry Turner.

Cleveland will return home, their five game road trip to open the season complete, and will lose five of their next six games on their own turf, outscored by a 25-5 mark in the two series against Detroit and Chicago.
