NO-HITTERS SPECIAL SUB-SET: BILL SINGER, JULY 20TH 1970

The next No-Hitter profiled as we march through the 1970’s is the gem spun by former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Bill Singer on July 20th of 1970 against the Philadelphia Phillies at Dodger Stadium:


Singer had a beauty of a game, striking out 10 batter without issuing a walk, though he did commit two errors and hit right-fielder Oscar Gamble with a pitch, preventing the perfect game.
A young Dodger “right-fielder” who would go on to much greater success in the infield, Bill Russell, drove in two runs, along with one RBI each from Willie Davis, Wes Parker and Jim Lefebvre, leading Los Abgeles to a 5-0 win.
Philly starter Woodie Fryman took the loss, throwing 4.2 innings and giving up all five runs before Lowell Palmer came in to pitch the final 3.1 innings, all scoreless with only one hit.
For Singer, it improved his record to 7-3 with a nifty 2.90 earned run average, while the loss dropped Fryman to 6-6 on the season.
