..and twelve days before that Hawkins threw the no-hitter in a game he lost to the Sox. MLB later took away his no-no because he did not pitch nine innings. He did not pitch nine because his outfield could not catch a fly ball or two and his offense could not score any runs. There was no reason for the Sox to hit in the Ninth.
