This day in baseball: First Canadian no-no

On September 9, 1945, Dick Fowler of the Philadelphia Athletics became the first Canadian to throw a major league no-hitter when he defeated the Browns, 1-0. It was Fowler’s first start in three years, having just returned from service in the Canadian Army during World War II.  The no-hitter was also the first by an Athletics pitcher since 1916.

    I noted it was his only win of the season (he went 1-2). Bet it’s the only time the sole win of the season was a no-no.
