Interesting game in San Diego.
Clay Kirby no-hit the Mets for eight innings but was losing 1-0. The San Diego manager went for the win and pinch-hit for him in the bottom of the eighth. San Diego didn't score and their bullpen lost the no-hitter in the top of the ninth when the Mets scored twice and went on to the 3-0 victory.
I recall listening to the game on the radio while in bed. Lots of dabate about whether the manager did the right thing in the days after the game.

Hot summer day in NYC for this 15 year old. I ate a chicken hero that didn't agree with me and was up all night feeling ill. Remember Jim McAndrew besting Clay Kirby who was removed by manager Preston Gomez despite throwing a no hitter, he was trailing 1-0 at the time. Given the sad state of the lowly 2nd year Padres, what was he thinking?
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
