On May 17, 1963 — At Colt Stadium, Don Nottebart throws the first no-hitter in franchise history when the Houston Colt .45’s beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-1. Nottebart fans eight and walks three. Carl Warwick and Howie Goss homer to supply Houston its runs. Al Spangler snares Wes Covington’s fly on the run for the final out. It is just the third Colts win in 24 tries against their early nemesis.

The no-no comes in the 197th game since the team’s inception last season.
