This day in baseball: No-hit, not-shutout

The White Sox committed three errors in the fourth inning of a game against the Indians on May 31, 1914 at Comiskey Park.  As a result, the game did not result in a shutout, in spite of the fact that pitcher Joseph Benz threw a no-hitter against the Cleveland team.  The game lasted a mere one hour and 45 minutes.
