  • No hitter!

    Local (El Cajon) boy Joe Musgrave comes home and in his second game as a Padre ends the 52 year wait for the team's first no hitter. He struck out 10 and walked none. The only Texas baserunner was Joey Gallo on a HBP.
    Congratulations Joe and thank you. Now there are none.

    Indeed! Congrats to Joe Musgrave, and congrats to the Padres for making unanimous the teams with no-hitters in their books!

    Put it in the books.

      Except...The Mets' no-hitter really wasn't. Beltran's line drive was fair, IMO.
      They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

        Oh, I agree, it was fair. Chalk flew up. But there are lots of bad calls in good games. I wonder how many bad calls were made in the other no-hitters in history. The boxscores are what count.

          I don't agree. The line drive was visually foul. Loose quicklime (or whatever the foul lines are made of) could easily be kicked up by a 100+mph line drive landing within a few millimeters of it. I'm tired of hearing that ball was fair. It wasn't. The umpire made the right call.

          If you want to go down that road, Knight made an error on the ground ball during Gooden's 1 hitter against the Cubs. Which was the only way noted speedster Keith Moreland could have beaten it out. The umpire made the wrong call.

            I couldn't edit out the video graphics from the screenshot, but this looks to me to be a chalk line that was hit by a baseball. It was not "within a few millimeters of it."
