Jose Fernandez vs. Matt Cain this afternoon, as both men are coming off of injuries and Fernandez(Miami Marlins) and Cain(San Francisco Giants) will both get their first starts of the 2015 season…Should make for an interesting matchup, but what about this matchup that Mark McKinney(High Point Enterprise) has for us today at www.hpenews.com:

On this date in 1963, San Francisco Giants’ ace Juan Marichal defeated Milwaukee Braves’ legend Warren Spahn 1-0 in a classic matchup of future Hall of Famers.

No big deal you say?

*****Well, consider this game lasted 16 innings and both hurlers went the distance.*****

They combined for 428 pitches – 227 by the 42-year-old Spahn and 201 by the 25-year-old Marichal.

Willie Mays homered off Spahn for the only run.

Remarkably, this game was played in four hours and 10 minutes. No dilly-dallying in this contest. Just two master craftsmen toeing the slab.
