A bizarre no hitter!

July 28, 1976- John "Blue Moon" Odom and Francisco Barrios combine to throw a no hitter against the As in Oakland. The Sox win it 2-1. Its one of the strangest no-hitters in history. Odom and Barrios combine to walk eleven Oakland hitters!

Bob Vanderberg of the Tribune has a very nice story on this game. He talks with some of the participants and has quotes from the original game story.

Wow, that tops Joe Cowley's no-hitter, he only walked seven that night...
