Throwback Thursday: Nolan Ryan fans 19 batters for on June 8, 1977
Nolan Ryan, pure and simply, had a cannon attached to his shoulder.
The Hall of Fame pitcher hurled seven-career no-hitters during his 27-year MLB career.
During his years with the Angels (1972-79), 'The Ryan Express' tossed four no-hitters and fanned 2,614 batters.
On June 8, 1977, Ryan struck out 19 batters for the third time in his career as the Angels defeat the Blue Jays 2-1. He allowed only six hits and walked five as well.
