My memory is not as accurate as the PI, but, when he was with the Mets, Al Leiter must have struck out on 3 pitches every other time up.

He walked on Aug 11, 1970. He did not get a hit in his last 35 at bats; his last hit came on Jul 29, 1970. Interestingly, on that date (Jul 29, 1970), Chance had two hits, 2 RBIs and a Sac Hit!

I saw he only had two career extra-base hits, both doubles. One of them was off Whitey Ford. In fact, Ford was one of just two pitchers off of whom Chance had more than one hit (Mudcat Grant was the other). Besides that rare double, he touched Ford for a go-ahead RBI hit in the bottom of the eighth on August 10, 1963. It broke a scoreless tie, but go figure, Chance blew the game in the ninth. Good stuff.
