Arrieta can join these six pitchers who threw two no-hitters in one season

The game was historic before Johnny Vander Meer even threw a pitch. It was the first regular season game played under lights at Ebbets Field. The game was preceded by great fanfare. There was a fife and drum corps that marched on the field, a parade of local politicians and officials of the power company who had installed the lights, which at the time were the most powerful lighting system at any sporting venue. Olympic champion Jesse Owens performed in a series of sprinting competitions that were set up on the field, and a record crowd of more than 40,000 crammed the tiny ballpark, which seated only about 38,000. Thanks to all of the pre-game hullabaloo, the first pitch wasn’t thrown until almost nine-thirty.

Ryan’s second no-hitter of ’73 was arguably the best of his seven. He was dominant: striking out 17 Tigers batters while walking four. In the bottom of the ninth, one out away from his no-hitter, Ryan faced Norm Cash, who felt so hopeless against Ryan that he brought a table leg to the plate to face the righthander.
