It's been 50 years since Hall of Famers Juan Marichal and Warren Spahn went toe-to-toe in what is perhaps the greatest pitching duel in major-league history.
July 2, 1963
Giants 1 - Braves 0, 16 innings
|Warren Spahn, L (11-4)||15.1||9||1||1||1||2||1||2.84|
|San Francisco Giants||IP||H||R||ER||BB||SO||HR||ERA|
|Juan Marichal, W (13-3)||16||8||0||0||4||10||0||2.14|
For the record, the Giants won the game on a Willie Mays solo-home run off of Spahn in the bottom of the 16th inning. It still mind-boggles me every time I read up on this game.
What a duel! I highly doubt we will ever again see two starters go toe-to-toe for 16 scoreless innings. Not in this lifetime.
