Nolan Blanks Mets With Three Hitter

Filed under Cincinnati Reds
May 9, 1967

Cincinnati rookie Gary Nolan (3-1) pitched his first complete game and shutout with a three-hit victory over the New York Mets, 3-0, before 8,604 at Shea Stadium. Only left-handers Al Luplow and pinch-hitter Larry Stahl found their way on base against Nolan who did not walk a single Met batter. Nolan did not allow Luplow or Sandy Alomar, who pinch-ran for Stahl in the ninth, to advance past first base. Mets starter Jack Fisher (1-3) pitched well, allowing only four hits and two walks, and perhaps deserving of a victory on any other night. Fisher allowed a run-scoring single by Vada Pinson in the third inning that proved enough support on this night for Nolan.
