He had a couple of games during his visit here in Pittsburgh that flirted with the idea but he was never able to get thru the full 9. Sort of expected the no-hitter to happen for him as long as the planets lined up a little bit. He's truly a great guy and there are many of us back here happy for him.

Good for him.

Now the Mets need a real no-hitter, not one the umps gifted them.

I honestly can't believe Musgrove threw a no-no. I was doing backflips when the Astros unloaded him to the Pirates for Gerrit Cole. I can't even begin to explain how wretched Musgrove was in Houston.

Some guys have a cannon for an arm. When Musgrove was in Houston, he had a feces log for an arm.

Alas. Good for him.

He wasn't too bad with the Pirates. I think he was dealing with some injuries while in Houston

The fact that he's a San Diego kid and he did it for the Padres makes the story just a little bit better.

/Really want to know how many no-no's were kept from being perfect by a single hit-by-pitch, like this one was

Max Scherzer (sp?) Lost a perfect game with two outs in the 9th a couple years ago when a batter leaned into a pitch and the ump let it go.

Chris Heston, Giants vs. Mets, June 9, 2015
9 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 11 K's, 3 HBP
Edwin Jackson, Diamondbacks vs. Rays, June 25, 2010
9 IP, 0 R, 8 BB, 6 K's, 1 HBP, 149 pitches

//There are probably more than the ones listed so far. Unless it was an unwritten rule that if the pitcher was perfect through 7, you hit the dirt on anything coming toward you. I have no idea if that was a thing, but I could see it falling under the "c'mon, don't be That Guy" heading.

Jackson walked 8 so that doesn't count. Musgrove literally faced only 1 above the minimum because of a HBP. Heston I'd also count since it was only hit batters, unless there was a fielding error in there too (and I'm too lazy to look that up).

I attended the University of Kentucky in the mid 90s. Friend of a friend was majoring in something like "TV Sports Broadcasting", and thanks to that, he had a toll-free contact number to the Elias Sports Bureau.

I only saw it in action once. It was amazing.

How about a walk to the 27th batter? One, so far.

A good friend of mine who is a lifelong Padres fan and now lives in Dallas was at this game

The worst part about that is the ump openly and tearfully acknowledged he messed up (as if the video wasn't clear enough) and the league stillwouldn't count it.
