Comments on: Allow 1 hit, lose the game http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/2732 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: gerry http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/2732/comment-page-1#comment-9248 Thu, 01 Oct 2009 01:41:47 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/?p=2732#comment-9248 I found two more 3-hit doubleheaders. On 27 May 1945, Boo Ferriss threw a 1-hitter and Emmett O'Neill a 2-hitter for the Red Sox against the White Sox. On 8 June 1969, Sam McDowell threw a 2-hitter and Mike Paul, Gary Kroll, Jack Hamilton, and Stan Williams combined for a 1-hitter for the Indians against the Angels. That 1-hitter makes the list above, as the Indians lost, 3-2.

Baseball fans like us remember these games and mentioned them often. This post is at least the 5th on this blog to mention the 1990 NYY/CWS game and the 1992 BOS/CLE game.

Is the baseball record book really better off without Harvey Haddix and Ernie Shore? Bud needs to lighten up.

The 2nd game was a no-hitter by Paul Dean (and I think the 1st game was a 3-hitter by Dizzy Dean, who said, after the 2nd game, "If I'd a known Paul was gonna throw a no-hitter, I'd a thrown one, too!").

The Andy Hawkins game, however, may have been one of the events that led major league baseball to clarify these rules.

That April 12, 1992, game that was the first game of a doubleheader between Boston and the Tribe in Cleveland was the first eight-inning complete game no-hit loss to come after this rule change. So Matt Young of the Red Sox never had his moment of fame of having pitched a no-hitter. I do remember reading at the time, however, that after Roger Clemens allowed only two hits in game 2, the 2 hits that the Indians managed in the two games combined broke a doubleheader record set by the Mets in that 1964 doubleheader in which one of the games was Jim Bunning's perfect game. The Mets only got 3 hits in the other game. I don't know if this record has since been broken or tied. There aren't that many doubleheaders these days.

I especially enjoy the 1990 NYY-CHW game. NY didn't allow a single hit yet lost 4-0. All 4 runs unearned and scored in the bottom of the 8th with 2 outs. Error, walk, walk, error (3 score), error (1 scores). I feel bad for Andy Hawkins, apparently he was pitching so well that the defense fell asleep. In his next game against Minnesota, he allowed 2 ER in 11.2 IP (both in the top of the 12th, also with 2 outs) and lost 2-0. His next game was against the White Sox again and he allowed 8 ER in 4.1 IP and lost 8-0. It looks like he had some pretty good games that year although you wouldn't know it from his 5-12 record and 5.37 ERA.

I found a description of how it went down. Looks like the key bit not in the boxscore was that Hough didn't cover home, allowing the slow but alert "rookie star" to score:

Charlie Hough of the Rangers held the Angels without a hit for eight and one-third innings tonight, but a single, a three-base error and two passed balls in the ninth left Hough and Texas 2-1 losers.

Hough (5-3) entered the ninth with a 1-0 lead. The right-handed knuckleball pitcher struck out the first batter. Then Jack Howell, pinch-hitting, reached third when George Wright, a defensive replacement, dropped his bloop-fly down the left-field line. Wally Joyner, the Angels' rookie star, followed by ruining Hough's no-hit bid with a line single to right-center that knocked in Howell.

With Doug DeCinces up, the catcher Orlando Mercado committed a passed ball, allowing Joyner to move to second. After DeCinces struck out and Reggie Jackson was intentionally walked, George Hendrick swung and missed at a 3-2 pitch for what should have been the final out of the inning.

But Mercado allowed the pitch to get by him for another passed ball, and Joyner raced home from second with the winning run as Hough failed to cover the plate.

Kirk McCaskill (6-4)allowed only four singles, one after the second inning, and struck out 10.

The Rangers scored in the second inning with the aid of a two-base error by the center fielder Gary Pettis. Tigers 5, Orioles 4
