Vin Scully I Saw It on the Radio (A Tribute Book)

“Rarest of rare”

Legendary broadcaster Vin Scully referred to is as the “Rarest of rare” in the top of the 9th with 2 outs. Why such a distinction? The Angels as a pitching staff were pitching a no-hitter. Weaver went 6 innings before being pulled for a pinch hitter in the 7th having thrown 97 pitches. Arredondo came in and pitched 2 more no-hit innings. This led to the 9th inning as the Angles were down 1-0 not having allowed a hit all game. Here is how the 9th went:

– T. Hunter struck out swinging
– C. Kotchman grounded out to second
– H. Kendrick doubled to left
– M. Napoli walked
– R. Willits hit for J. Arredondo
– R. Willits struck out swinging

0 runs, 1 hits, 0 errors
LA Angels 0, LA Dodgers 1

“Rarest of rare” indeed. I have never seen anything like this. I believe this is the 4th or 5th this has happened in MLB history. I’ll list the other ones as soon as I can find it. If someone else finds it first please post it here with a link. Thanks.
