FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»September 12, 1964: The Orioles' Frank Bertaina and the A's Bob Meyer duel in the ML's 5th double one-hitter. Bertaina prevails 1–0, his 1st ML win and only decision of the year. Johnny Orsino's 8th inning double and Doc Edwards 5th inning two-bagger account for the hits. Baltimore sets a major-league record for fewest at-bats in a nine inning game (8 times at bat) with 19, and both clubs go to the plate just 46 times. The last battle of matching one-hitters was June 21, 1956.
