SF 2, HOU 0 W-Marichal 7-9 L-Dierker 7-9 HR-Bonds(14) Marichal NO-HITTER, Dierker 2-hitter.
Juan Marichal tossed the league's third no-hitter on Tuesday, stopping the visiting Astros in masterful fashion. It was sweet revenge for the high-kicking Dominican right-hander, as he defeated Larry Dierker--who only gave up 2 hits himself--two to nothing; the very same score Dierker beat him by in late June. The red hot Bobby Bonds led off the 1st with a booming homer, then another run scored on two walks, a grounder, and a sac fly, for all the offense that would be necessary. Juan gave up only a pair of walks, to Jim Wynn and Normal Norm Miller. When Jesus Alou hit a grounder to second sacker Don Mason, who fired to defensive first base sub Bob Burda for the final out, Marichal found himself in the record books. The '69 campaign was not even two weeks old when the first two no-hitters were recorded, by Hands of Chicago against the Phillies and Singer of the Dodgers against these same Spacemen. Incidentally, the win moved the Giants into second place in the jam-packed sardine can of the NL west.
