  • 9/14/08: Carlos Zambrano's No-Hitter

    Full Episode

    S 2008 : Ep 09.14.08 - 9/14/08

    Chicago Cubs 5 at Houston Astros 0, F -- Carlos Zambrano returned from a sore arm with electrifying stuff vs. the Houston Astros, and tossed Cubs' first no-no in 36 years … at Miller Park in Milwaukee! Zambrano was making his first start in 12 days, but instead of taking the mound in Houston, where the game was originally scheduled, the big righty found himself on the hill in Milwaukee. It was a rare-neutral site MLB game, made necessary by Hurricane Ike, which had hit the Houston area days before. And from the first pitch to the last, the big righthander consistently hit 99 mph with his fastball, and dominated a previously red-hot Astros lineup from start to finish in a remarkable 110-pitch outing. He struck out a season-high 10 and walked just one. Only two balls left the infield all night, and there were no close calls or spectacular plays needed to save him. Amazingly, Zambrano said he was thinking of a no-hitter from the start, knowing he had the stuff to get it done. Entering the ninth having thrown only 99 pitches, Zambrano was still on fire. When he got Darin Erstad to chase a split-finger pitch for strike three, the ballpark erupted into a celebratory frenzy. It was the Big Z's first no-hitter, and the first by a Cubs pitcher in 36 years, and the first at a neutral site, in front of a very pro-Cubs crowd of 23,441 at Miller Park.moreless
  • 5/19/2008: Jon Lester's No-Hitter

    Full Episode

    S 2008 : Ep 05.19.08 - 5/19/08

    Kansas City Royals 0 at Boston Red Sox 7, F -- If only all the spectators and teammates who reveled in Jon Lester's magical Monday night at Fenway Park could have seen the way it started. Warming up in the bullpen with catcher Jason Varitek before the game, Lester, he admitted after the game, "had nothing." As it turns out, he knows a thing or two about perseverance. And on this night, he stayed the course to throw a no-hitter, the 18th Red Sox history. With each passing inning, his pitches became filthier and filthier. It all came to a jubilant end when the lefty blew a 94-mph heater -- his 130th pitch of the night -- by Alberto Callaspo. Just like that, the 7-0 victory was complete, so was Lester's no-no, not to mention the first complete game and the first shutout of his career.moreless

    S 2004 : Ep 05.18.04 - 5/18/04

    Arizona Diamondbacks 2 at Atlanta Braves 0, F -- Firing 117 pitches while striking out 13, the 40-years-and-251-days-old Big Unit became the oldest pitcher ever to throw a Perfect Game. Fittingly, the final out came when Johnson blew a 98-mph fastball past pinch-hitter Eddie Perez.moreless

    S 1999 : Ep 07.18.99 - 7/18/99

    Montreal Expos 0 at New York Yankees 6, F -- It was Yogi Berra Day at Yankee Stadium, and Yogi caught the ceremonial first pitch from former batterymate Don Larsen before the game. Almost 43 years earlier, with Berra behind the plate, Larsen pitched a Perfect Game in the World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Fast-forward to that July day and it was -- as Berra might put it -- "déjà vu all over again."moreless

    S 1998 : Ep 05.17.98 - 9/14/08

    Minnesota Twins 0 at New York Yankees 4, F -- 35-year-old David Wells dragged a turbulent season and 5.23 ERA behind him to the mound, and, 27 outs later was carried off of it, perfect. The season, up to this point, had not been an easy one for the pitcher. Being yanked from his previous start in the third inning, despite a 9-0 Yankee lead, had Boomer openly contemplating retirement. Not an irrational thought for someone two weeks shy of his 35th birthday. But he didn't, of course, and on May 17 lugged his 5.23 ERA out to the Yankee Stadium mound to face the Minnesota Twins. 27 batters later, as Paul O'Neill squeezed the last out in right field, Boomer would drop to his knees, elated and overwhelmed... a member of baseball's immortal pantheon.moreless
  • 5/14/96: Dwight Gooden's No-Hitter

    Full Episode

    S 1996 : Ep 05.14.96 - 5/14/96

    Seattle Mariners 0 at New York Yankees 2, F -- Amid ongoing mound troubles and worries back home over his father's impending heart surgery, Dwight "Doc" Gooden was the one operating that night in Yankee Stadium. In the first inning, Seattle shortstop Alex Rodriguez smashed a drive to center field, but Yankee outfielder Gerald Williams made a sensational over-the-shoulder grab. The play would loom large as Gooden piled up the outs, striking out five while walking six. Facing the heart of the Mariners' lineup in the ninth and way past a reasonable 100-pitch count, some folks wondered whether Gooden would have enough gas to get over the finish line. Manager Joe Torre left him in, and Doc got Ken Griffey, Jr. to bounce out, Jay Buhner to strike out, and Paul Sorrento to pop up. Finally, 135 pitches deep, his teammates carried the emotional and exhausted former Rookie of the Year and Cy Young winner off the field to the cheers of the more than 31,000 fans at Yankee Stadium.moreless
  • 9/4/93: Jim Abbott's No-Hitter

    S 1993 : Ep 09.04.93 - 9/4/93

    Cleveland Indians 0 at New York Yankees 4, F -- Folks always rooted for Jim Abbott, the one-handed lefty who wanted to be "like Nolan Ryan, not Pete Grey." On this cloudy day in the Bronx, a mere six days after a rough 10-hit, seven-run, 3 1/3 innings start against the same Cleveland Indians lineup, Jim Abbott turns it around for this no-no in Yankee Stadium. Nolan Ryan-like indeed.moreless
  • 8/26/91: Bret Saberhagen's No-Hitter

    Full Episode

    S 1991 : Ep 08.26.91 - 8/26/91

    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
  • 5/1/91: Nolan Ryan's 7th No-Hitter

    S 1991 : Ep 05.01.91 - 5/1/91

    Toronto Blue Jays 0 at Texas Rangers 3, F -- In front of an adoring hometown Texas crowd, 44-year-old Nolan Ryan does for the seventh time what most pitchers dream of doing just once. And when baseball's King of Ks struck out Roberto Alomar for his 16th strikeout of the game, it marked the completion of his record seventh no-hit gem -- three more than the man with the second most no-nos in history, Sandy Koufax.moreless
  • 9/2/90: Dave Steib's No-Hitter

    Full Episode

    S 1990 : Ep 09.02.90 - 9/2/90

    Toronto Blue Jays 3 at Cleveland Indians 0, F -- Dave Stieb has always been good enough to throw a no-hitter... just never lucky enough. The author of five one-hitters since 1988, the 12-year veteran had taken a no-hitter into the 9th inning on four separate occasions over the last two years. On this day in early September, Stieb was fully in control, striking out nine Indians and walking four. In fact, the Indians didn't even come close to a hit. In addition to finally bagging his own personal white whale, Stieb got his second shutout and complete game of the year, striking out the side in the third and sixth innings. The no-hitter was the first against Cleveland since Dean Chance of the Minnesota Twins pitched one on Aug. 25, 1967, and the ninth no-hitter of the 1990 MLB season, a modern day baseball record.moreless
  • 9/16/88: Tom Browning's Perfect Game

    Full Episode

    S 1988 : Ep 09.16.88 - 9/19/88

    LA Dodgers 0 at Cincinnati Reds 1, F -- Despite cooling his heels (and arm) during a two-and-a-half hour rain delay, once the game started, Cincy's Tom Browning methodically retired every Dodger he faced, recalling a night barely three months earlier when he had a perfect game for 8 1/3 innings. This time, Browning's dominance was virtually matched by Los Angeles' Tim Belcher, who also took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. Would the rain hold out long enough to allow these two hurlers to make a run at history?moreless
  • 9/16/78: Tom Seaver's No-Hitter

    Full Episode

    S 1978 : Ep 09.16.78 - 6/16/78

    St. Louis Cardinals 0 at Cincinnati Reds 4, F -- On any given night in his career, Tom Seaver could be virtually unhittable. Three times he had taken a no-hitter into the ninth inning, and five times he finished a game with only one hit allowed. Yet for all his accomplishments, the Cooperstown-bound hurler was unable to bag his own personal white whale in the form of a complete game no-no. All of that changed on one night in the middle of June.moreless
