    I know this isn't lacrosse, but I am still buzzing over that no hitter thrown by our very own Kevin Millwood yesterday (April 27) against the San Francisco Giants. I was just wondering if anyone else was at the Phillies game to see it, and what everyone's reactions were. That was the single best game I ever saw (despite sloppy offense), and the best pitched game since the Schilling/Maddux game in '96 that I saw where both pitchers took their scoreless games to the 9th, and the Phils won by a seeing-eye single. It is a very special thing to have witnessed a no hitter, and I may never see one again live and in person. Again, I just wanted to start up some gool old fashioned baseball talk......on the lacrosse board.:D

    Wasn't at the game PHiG, but I did see Terry Mullholland's no hitter in August 1990.

    Congrats on seeing one. It is definitely thrilling.

    Another cool thing was seeing one of the game balls from Mullholland's game in a display of balls from ALL the
    no-hitters/perfect games ever played, at the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    I hope you brought a camera or got a signature on something that was dated.

    I saw a one-hitter by Dave Stieb once, and I thought that was great, until he threw another one in the last game of the same season, and then two of his first three starts in the next season were also one-hitters. Three one-hitters in four consecutive starts - amazing.

    [Edit: Actually, thinking some more about it, it might have been the last two starts in one season and the second of the next. Either way three one-hitters in four consecutive starts.]

    He finally did get his no-hitter a couple of years later in Cleveland - my wife was at that game (before we were dating).

    PhairIsGod: Phillies fan, eh? Two words for you: Mitch Williams! And if you don't like those two words, how about two more: Joe Carter! :rotfl:

    Blue Jays: World Series champs in '92 AND '93, and they've pretty much sucked ever since. :(

    I was at the game and most of the fans didnt sit down for the last 3 innings pitched. I had hopes of seeing the same accomplishment last year when padilla went into the 6th or 7th with no hits

    So, you remember that, eh? Well, I can assure you that won't happen this year. The B-J's won't even make it past August with post season hopes!:D There are unofficial reports that the Yankees have locked up the AL East already.:rolleyes:

    I was there, I have a Sunday plan. I had never seen a no hitter in person, that's alot of ball games!

    I am keeping all the ticket stubs this season, so my proof is always there. Plus my brother brought his new toy...a digital camcorder. He recorded all the Phanatic antics for his wife. He was so caught up in the game he forgot he even had it till later when he said "hey that would have been a good time to grab the camera, the last 3 outs..." what a turkey.

    GREAT GAME!!

    No kidding about the Yanks - who knew a bunch of old guys could still pitch so well?

    Here's a great article on the Yankees from theonion.com.

    I can't comment on the whole , but I did see the last two innings, and was sitting on the edge of my seat during the last pitch, screaming at the TV. What a scene it must have been....it's a shame no one was there to witness it (thank god!).:D

    H42 is a lot less insufferable in person.

    So was Hooligan.... until I met H42, I thought they may have been the same person. Oh and to.the Phair references he made, his handle was originally Phair_is_god.

    I'm researching for a Blue Jays book that I'm writing, and it's crazy to think of how many one-hitters Stieb threw, especially how many in which he had a no-hitter with 2 outs in the 9th only to lose it.

    Useless fact, the Toronto Maple Leafs of the International League (and the Eastern League before that, and other various leagues) threw 16 no-hitters in their history.
