BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Orioles pitcher John Means added his name to Major League Baseball’s record books on Wednesday throwing a no hitter against the Seattle Mariners in a 6-0 win. The performance from Means marks the Orioles first solo no-hitter since Jim Palmer in 1969. Means missed out on a perfect game only because of a ball that got past catcher Pedro Severino on a strikeout of Sam Haggerty in the third inning. Haggerty reached first on what was ruled a wild pitch but then was caught attempting to steal second allowing Means to face the minimum 27 hitters in the outing.

In 1936, Germany’s Deputy Fuhrer Rudolph Hess asked British Lord Castlereagh, “Why do you not have Winston Churchill in your British Cabinet? Then we should know you meant business.” The question was largely rhetorical. Churchill had been a lonely voice in the political wilderness for many years, his warnings about the Nazi menace falling on deaf ears.
