On This Day... Terry Mulholland's gem

22 years ago today Phillies lefthander Terry Mulholland energized an otherwise dismal summer of Phillies baseball by throwing the club's first no-hitter in the history of Veterans Stadium.

Mulholland shut out the Giants, his former team, 6-0. He lost his perfect game in the seventh inning after 3rd baseman Charlie Hayes made a throwing error. Hayes made up for his miscue in the end... snagging pinch hitter Gary Carter's hard liner over the 3rd base bag to end the game. It is the record eighth no-hitter of the 1990 season surpassing the previous record set in 1908 and 1917.
