Today in White Sox History: September 19

Going out on a high note: Joe Cowley [right] not only threw a wild no-hitter against the Angels — it was his last big-league win.

Sept. 19, 1925 — The White Sox set the franchise record (since tied) for the largest shutout margin in team history when they blanked the Senators 17-0 at Washington. The game was the back half of a twin bill. Ted Lyons would throw a one-hitter, losing his no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning on a bloop hit by Bobby Veach.

Sept. 19, 1986 — White Sox pitcher Joe Cowley made the record books by no-hitting the Angels in Anaheim, 7-1. It was an unusual no-hitter. Cowley walked seven, including three straight in the sixth inning, when California got their run.

Ironically, it would be Cowley’s last win in the big leagues.
