Mel Parnell, in the final year of his career, throws the first no-hit game in the American League in three seasons when he defeats the White Sox at Fenway Park, 4-0. The 34-year-old becomes the first Red Sox pitcher to throw a no-hitter since Howard Ehmke accomplished the feat against Philadelphia in 1923.

Red Sox shortstop John Valentin snares Marc Newfield’s sixth inning line drive, steps on second retiring Mike Blowers and then tags Kevin Mitchell coming from first to turn an unassisted triple play. After completing the rare feat, accomplishing a play that has occurred only ten times in major league history, the infielder begins a three-homer outburst by Boston in the bottom of the inning, helping the team beat the Mariners at Fenway Park, 4-3.
