Mets “No-hitter” and Near Misses

June 8, 2012

I missed Johan Santana’s no hit game vs the world champion Cardinals which was the first in Mets’ history. My mind wandered to the three times George Seaver took a no hitter into the 9th inning. “Tom” yielded hits to Jimmy Qualls, Leron Lee and Joe “Tarzan” Wallis.

In the “Wallis game” the Mets did not even win the game. As I recall the first one vs Qualls, I  watched on television while the other two I heard on the radio. I know the “Wallis” game was not televised but likely the July 4th “Leron Lee” game was televised. Maybe I just remember the radio call and certainly remember my Yankees fan acquaintance cheering when Lee broke up Seaver’s no hit bid.
