Episode Summary

8/26/91: Bret Saberhagen's No-Hitter
Chicago White Sox 0 at Kansas City Royals 7, F -- Bret Saberhagen, a 27-year-old right-hander, got a standing ovation from the crowd of 25,164 at Royals Stadium when he took the mound to start the ninth. Twice a Cy Young Award winner and recipient of the 1985 World Series MVP, Saberhagen had never before come close to a no-no. Saberhagen, who walked two and faced 30 batters in the game, had one out in the fifth inning when left-handed-hitting White Sox right fielder Dan Pasqua hit a line drive to left field on which Kirk Gibson got a late jump. The left fielder ran back on an angle toward center field, jumped at the last moment at the front edge of the warning track and had the ball tip his glove and fall off, allowing Pasqua to reach second base. The scoreboard immediately flashed a hit but the official scorer, after watching replays, ruled it a two-base error. The call remained, and Saberhagen was near-perfect thereafter, and the fourth no-hitter in Royals history was his.moreless
