June 15, 1938: Vander Meer Tosses His Second Consecutive No Hitter

On June 15, 1938, in the first ever night game played at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, Johnny Vander Meer of the Cincinnati Reds led his team to a 6-0 win with a no hit performance against the Dodgers. Just four days earlier he had tossed a no no in a 3-0 win over the Boston Braves at Crosley Field in Cincinnati, making him the first and only pitcher in the history of the game to throw consecutive no hitters.
