On June 12, 1970, Dock Ellis of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitches a no-hitter despite giving up eight walks. The talented right-hander shuts down the San Diego Padres, 2-0, with help from Roberto Clemente and Bill Mazeroski, who each make terrific defensive plays. Ellis will later admit to pitching the game under the influence of LSD.
