The Indians are the first team in nearly 55 years to win a game with their only hit coming in their first at-bat.

Grady Sizemore led off Cleveland's 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday with a double.

The Indians' output Sunday was the lowest hit total in a victory for the club since April 12, 1992, when they had no hits off Matt Young of Boston.

Now, it would seem that it would be hard to win a game in which you have no hits. It's happened more than you might though however. It happened twice in two years in the early 90's. On July 1, 1990 Andy Hawkins pitched a no-hitter for the Yankees, but his team lost 4-0 to the White Sox.

I watched that Yankees-Sox 4-0 no hitter. I think they walked the bases loaded and then an outfielder misplayed a fly ball in the wind and it cleared the bases.
