This day in baseball: Dean brothers domination

In a doubleheader at Ebbets Field on 21 September 1934, brothers Dizzy Dean and Paul Dean dominated the Dodgers, each starting a game on the mound for the St. Louis Cardinals.  In the first game, Dizzy Dean pitched a two-hit shutout, blanking the Dodgers 13-0.  Not to be outdone, his rookie younger brother, Paul, followed up in game two with a no-hitter, as the Cardinals defeated Brooklyn 3-0.  This performance made Paul Dean only the fifth pitcher in Major League history to throw a no-hitter in his rookie season.
