The White Sox’ Jim ‘Nixey’ Callahan throws the first no-hitter first in franchise history when he defeats the Tigers, 2-0. The right-handed utility player will accumulate 99 victories on the mound, but will only pitch in eight of his 13 seasons in the major leagues.
Senators pitcher Walter Johnson (408) beats Red Faber (197) and the White Sox at Griffith Stadium, 9-3. The veteran pitchers have accumulated the largest amount of victories, a total of 605, for two pitchers who start the same game, a record which will not be broken until Tom Seaver faces Don Sutton in 1986.
