And Bobo Hollman had a no hitter in his first major league start.
OK, I see the problem. I meant to say the best start for a Card rookie. (ERA, 1st 8 starts) My error. But I stand by my amazement. See, I was watching the Bulls/Heat game mostly and the Cards on radio. I did not know the kid had not given up a hit since that crack bat single in the 1st.
Turned off the Bulls and got back to baseball and learned what was going on in the 8th. So I was hanging on every pitch. I DID notice that Miller got every borderline call. Anyway, it was a kick.
Some no hitters take an awful lot of luck. Van der Meer comes immidiatly to mind X2! He walked like 10 or 11 guys in those 2 games. If memory serves, he walked the bases loaded in the 9th in the 2nd one. First nite game in history. Leo the Lip made a fine play to end the threat.
