Indians nearly blow tremendous pitching performance, rally to beat Orioles 4-3

I remember Len Barker’s perfect game. That is to say, I remember my dad turning the television channel to the Indians game in the eighth or ninth inning of that game. I was 8. There hasn’t been a no-hitter by an Indian pitcher since May 15th, 1981. Through all the dominant months and years of those exciting 90′s Indians, and the back-to-back Cy Young winners of the 2000′s...
