April's Pitcher of the Month, Jim McGlothlin, is proving he is not just a spring sensation. McGlothlin completed a no-hitter against the A's.
The fantastic spring of California Angel pitcher Jim McGlothlin continues toward the summer months. McGlothlin pitched a no-hitter, the second in franchise history, against the Kansas City Athletics, 6-0, in front of 4,793 at Municipal Stadium. The incomparable Bo Belinsky no-hit the Orioles on May 5, 1962.

McGlothlin received early run support from his teammates as Don Mincher doubled home a run in the first and catcher Bob Rodgers hit his first home run of the season in the second inning. Mincher also added a home run, his eighth, as both Mincher and Rodgers collected three hits each in the game. McGlothlin was in complete control all evening. Jim walked three batters, but no A’s runner ever advanced past first base. The final free pass of the night was erased on a fine double play turned by shortstop Jim Fregosi who nipped the speedy Bert Campaneris at first in the ninth inning. The league’s leading hitter, Rick Monday, then hit McGlothlin’s next offering to second baseman Tom Satriano who tossed the ball to Mincher for a routine out. But, there was nothing routine to the reaction by the Halos who swarmed around and then carried McGlothlin off the field.
