    The only man to pitch a no-hitter in the World Series, and that was a perfect game.

    The box score from game 5 of the 1956 World Series game:

    Dodgers 0-0-0
    Yankees 2-5-0

    Larsen's line:

    IP H R BB SO
    9 0 0 0 7

    I still think that last pitch was high and away. But at that point he was gonna get the benefit of the doubt.

    Maybe, but it looked to me that Dale Mitchell broke the plane on his half swing. 6 of 1 half a dozen of another.
