He would go on to win a career high 27 games that year. He enjoyed an 18-year career, but missed three seasons during World War II. He was 266-162 over the length of his career with an ERA of 3.25. He would throw two more no hitters during his career. He was an eight time All-Star elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.
