Memorable Moments for Cy Young

  • 30 April 1901 - Following three losses to begin the season, Boston wins its first game in franchise history, besting the Athletics in Philadelphia 8-6 in extra innings after falling behind 6-1. It was the American League's first-ever extra inning game as Cy Young earned the win.
  • 1 July 1903 - Cy Young wins 1-0 in his third consecutive start, the only time in major league history a pitcher has won three straight decisions by a score of 1-0. Young helps his own cause by driving home the winning run in the tenth on a double.
  • 5 May 1904 - The first no-hitter in franchise history is also the first perfect game thrown in the American League as Cy Young retires all 27 Philadelphia batters in a 3-0 win.
  • 30 June 1908 - Cy Young throws his third career no-hitter, his second with Boston, as the Red Sox beat the Yankees 8-0 in New York.
  • 12 December 1908 - The Red Sox trade Lou Criger, Cy Young's personal catcher; two months later, Boston trades away Young to the Indians. Young and Criger were the last two players from the club's inaugural still with the franchise in 1908.
  • 12 November 1986 - Only the second player to earn the honor unanimously, Roger Clemens becomes the first Red Sox pitcher since Jim Lonborg in 1967 to win the Cy Young Award. It is the first of three with Boston and seven total in his career.
  • 13 November 2000 - Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez wins his second consecutive Cy Young Award with Boston and his third in four seasons.
  • 16 November 2016 - Rick Porcello edges out Justin Verlander for the 2016 American League Cy Young Award. Despite 14 first place votes for the latter pitcher, Porcello earns eight first place votes and 18 second place votes to finish just ahead of Verlander in the final tally (137 to 132). It is the closest race in voting history, and becomes more controversial after it's revealed that two voters left Verlander off their respective ballots.
