Mr Washburn pitched for the St Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds from 1961 to 1970. His best season was in 1968 when he won 14 games with 8 losses. On September 18, 1968, he threw a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants but what is weird is that the previous day, Gaylord Perry threw a no-hitter against the Cardinals. Back to back no-hitters. In 1969 he was traded to the Reds for another no-hit pitcher, George Culver.
