Cubs Fact:

Don Cardwell threw a no-hitter for the Cubs in his first game after being traded from the Phillies on May 15,1960.
Please don't feed the psychos.

Cardwell walked the second batter he faced, then retired the next 26. Walt "Moose" Moryn, not a great fielder, made a nice shoestring catch of a sinking line drive for the last out.

Furthermore, it was on a Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals and Cunningham was a Cub killer at the time.

Not sure why the final outs don't play, but here is a link to see Cardwell's 9th inning that day.

And this is the text of the great Cubs radio broadcaster, Jack Quinlan - who died during spring training in 1965:

"Ball 3, strike 1 on Cunningham... Here's the pitch... Strike 2! (Wrigley Field crowd roars) ... Cunningham's arguing now... he's back here barkin' at Tony Venson, the plate umpire... he's really sore... he is really peeved at that strike two, that was called... One more pitch could end it... You know what kind of a pitch we're hopin' for: The dark one! Blow it past him Don! ... Here comes the biggest pitch of this ballgame... Lined into left field... (crowd gasps) ... Here's Moryn comin' ... (crowd roars) ... HE CAUGHT IT! He caught it! A no-hitter! A no-hitter for Cardwell! Moryn made a great game-saving catch! It's a no-hitter for Cardwell... his teammates are mobbin' him... Cardwell's teammates are poundin' him to death!"

2nd game of a double header, I think. Sure seems like you're right about Cunningham. Kind of cool seeing Musial at bat in the utube.

I totally agree.
