TURN BACK THE CLOCK #20 CARL ERSKINE TOSSES SECOND CAREER NO-HITTER 1956

Next up in my “Turn Back the Clock” thread is former Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Carl Erskine, who pitched his second career no-hitter in 1956 against the New York Giants on May 12th:


After tossing his first gem back in 1952 against the Chicago Cubs, Erskine came back to do the same against a powerful Giants team led by Willie Mays, joining the likes of Virgil Trucks and Allie Reynolds to pitch more than one no-hitter in the decade.
He put together a very nice 12-year career, all with the Dodgers organization between 1948 and 1959, posting a 122-78 record, good for a .610 winning percentage while being a part of five World Series, collecting a 2-2 record with two championships in 1955 and 1959.
