Box score from the past (09.16.65)

Dave Morehead spent 6 mediocre seasons with the Red Sox before being shipped off to Kansas City for 2 more of the same. His only claim to fame was in a game on September 16, 1965 at Fenway Park in which, if not for 1 pitch, he might have had a perfect game. He walked Rocky Colavitio in the top of the 2nd inning and shut down the Indians the rest of the way, striking out 8 of them in the process.

It was a true pitcher's duel that day, as the opposing pitcher, who would later join the Red Sox, was Luis Tiant, who allowed only 6 hits and 2 runs, striking out 11 Red Sox and recording a complete game himself.
