Date of Event: September 5, 1969
Steve Blass had a great game day on September 5, 1969, on the mound AND at the plate. He pitched a four hitter where Billy Williams had hit them all. Conceivably, if Billy wasn’t present, he’d have pitched a no hitter. As for Blass’s success at the plate, he hit as many runs as he gave up and drove in enough runs to win the game.
