Dave Stieb, the king of late-inning near-misses, finally got his no-no (and the Blue Jays’ first) during the 1990 season on the road against the Cleveland Indians.
On August 8, 2010, Brandon Morrow came within one out of throwing the Jays’ second no-hitter, but the Tampa Bay Rays’ Evan Longoria tagged him for a two-out, ninth-inning single.
Here is the Blue Jays’ one no-hitter:
|Toronto Blue Jays (AL)|
|Sunday, September 2, 1990|
Toronto Blue Jays 3, Cleveland Indians 0
Cleveland Stadium (Cleveland)
I was there! Still have my ticket stub for the game…
My brother and I were there, too. We probably saw each other, too. If my memory recalls, there were only about 3,000 people in that 70,000+ old stadium anyway!!
