Cardinals History

1903 – In an afternoon game called because of unusual darkness, Giants’ pitcher Red Ames, making his major league debut, tosses a five-inning no-hitter against the Cardinals. The New York right-hander, who also will no-hit the Superbas on Opening Day in 1909 before yielding a single with one out in the tenth, will have both of his no-hit bids discounted after the 1991 change of rules no longer give credit for no-hit performances in games played for less than nine innings or for contests where the first hit is given up in extra innings.

The St. Louis Cardinals returned Jim Brown to Topeka (Western Association) as part of a conditional deal in 1915.

With his 6-5 victory over New York at Sportsman’s Park in 1941, Cardinals right-hander Howie Krist finishes the season, 10-0. Spud’s perfect season establishes a National League record for the most wins in a season by a pitcher without a defeat.

 

The Cardinals, in 1971, trade Fred Rico and Dan Ford to the Minnesota Twins for Stan Williams. 

The Cardinals purchased Barry Lersch from the Atlanta Braves in 1974.

The Oakland Athletics purchased Ron Fairly, in 1976, from the  Cardinals.
