The Houston Astros’ Darryl Kile no-hit the New York Mets, 22 years ago today.
Kile struck out nine while walking one in the game at the Astrodome in which the Astros won 7-1. He had retired the first 10 Mets batters, but the Mets got a run in the fourth thanks to a walk followed by an Astros defensive breakdown.
After walking Jeff McKnight, Kile threw a wild pitch, which catcher Scott Servais thought hit Joe Orsulak on the foot. It didn’t, and as McKnight ran to third, first baseman Jeff Bagwell grabbed the ball and threw it off-line, allowing McKnight to score.
