#40 is here.

#39 June 15, 1963 34 Years

Going to the bottom of the 8th, San Francisco and Houston had combined for a total of 1 hit, a Williw Mays first inning single.

Neither team had placed a runner in scoring position.

In the 8th, doubles by Jim Davenport and, with two out, Chuck Hiller scored the only run the Giants would need - Juan Marichal beat Houston 1-0.

It was the first no-hitter the Giants had thrown in 34 years, since Carl Hubbell in 1929.

Marichal allowed only two walks and struck out five.

#38 is tomorrow.
