Schilling Blog Re One-Hitter

It's here.

Schilling also recalls his 2002 start in which his bid for a perfect game was broke up by an eighth-inning bunt.

I think it was on SI.com that an article was discussing the list of pitchers with have never had a no-hitter. Includes Pedro, Clemens, Maddux, Mussina, and Glavine.

Curt's blog post was fun (as usual).

Clemens not doing well in Pittsburgh. Has had to throw a lot of pitches. Gave up one run in the first and just gave up a two-run double in the fourth.

Line right now after four is five hits, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO.

Yanks tied 3-3.

Clemens recovers with 1-2-3 5th and 6th innings to earn the "quality start" and probably the win.

Didn't Pedro throw a perfect game that doesn't count? Please refresh my swiss-cheese memory, oh Pedro expert.

Pedro, pitching for the Expos, retires the first 27 Padres. But Montreal cannot score a run. 0-0 after 9.

The Expos get a run in the top of the 10th. Pedro allows a double to Bip Roberts to start the 10th. He is replaced on the mound. A wild pitch puts Roberts on third -- with no outs -- but he does not score.

Montreal (and Pedro) wins 1-0.

Red Sox Pitchers Throw Perfect Game
Associated Press
Tuesday, March 14, 2000

FORT MYERS, Fla. –– Pedro Martinez and five relievers combined on a spring training perfect game Tuesday as the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-0.

Martinez struck out six in three innings. He was followed by Fernando De La Cruz, Dan Smith, Rheal Cormier, Rich Garces and Rod Beck.

***********

If I recall correctly, Pedro was running around the locker room afterwards yelling "I threw a perfect game! I threw a perfect game!"

On April 13, 1994, Pedro had a perfect game going with one out in the 8th when he hit Cincinnati's Reggie Sanders in the arm. (Some people maintain that it was deliberate.)

John Wetteland pitched the 9th inning for Montreal.
