call it the "Andy Hawkins rule."
True, but didn't it also take away Pedro's five-inning perfect game?
Boston's Devern Hansack pitched a five-inning, rain-shortened no-hitter on the final day of the season against the O's in 2006.
OK, I'll fall on my sword to find out: what happened in 1991 that affected no-hitters?
I'm amused that the least effective pitcher (Stephen Pryor) for Seattle ended up getting the win. That's going to be a fun trivia question: what pitcher won a no-hitter by pitching 1/3 of an inning and walking 2?
This eliminated such wonderful games as the Andy Hawkins 0-4 no-hitter and Harvey Haddix's loss after 12 perfect innings from the record books.
I can understand taking out rain-shorted games, but an 8 inning no-hitter in a loss is a legitimate complete game.
I think what the Vincent panel did was correct, but maybe that's just me.
I could be wrong, but I think any army on earth that invades the Pacific Ocean is going to lose, and badly.
You can still lose a no-hitter at home, though, right? Has that happened?
ESPN Classic - Classic Box Score: May 2, 1917
Reds 1, Cubs 0 (10 innings)
Reds pitcher Fred Toney and Chicago hurler Hippo Vaughn each throw no-hitters through nine innings. Vaughn gives up two hits and a run in the 10th, but Toney is able to keep the Cubs hitless and scoreless in the bottom and the Reds win 1-0. It remains the only dual no-hitter in history.
Eh, I think throwing 9 innings of no-hit (or perfect) ball is what should count. We all are up in arms about pitching wins being credited with a lot of value; well, the fact that your team hasn't yet scores (or committed errors behind you) isn't on the pitcher.
It may not be a true perfect game because he gave up a hit in the 10th, but what Pedro did that day is equally as impressive as what any of the other perfect pitchers did.
I assume that if some guy pitches, say, 12 innings of perfect/no-hit ball then has to be lifted for a reliever who gives up a hit that we're not giving that first guy credit either.
I'm going to come in and say that I don't like non-shutout no-hitters (so Ervin Santana's last year), and then quietly leave.
