when i was looking up mcgowan's no-hit bid, the article said he was the 6th blue jay pitcher to take a no-hitter into the ninth. is this correct? or is the article supposed to be: it's the 6th time toronto has taken a no-hit bid into the ninth and only ended up with a one hitter? (steib's 4 + halladay's 1 + mcgowan's 1 = 6). did this happen to 3 other toronto pitchers?
another game that i found was clemen's 18 K game on aug 25, 1998. That's a game i'd like to see as well.
I could watch the 15-14 rain soaked WS game in Philly over and over and never get bored.
As for moments the Carter Hr(off Williams), Alomar Hr(off Eckersly), Devo Catch(WS 92), are some real key plays that never get boring. Heck I even enjoyed Alomar doin the tomahawk chop from 3rd the one world series.
I wish they had the Jays 92-93 vhs on dvd. I wished theyd show the 15-14 on TSN or ESPN classic.
The 1993 ALCS against the White Sox never really gets much mention but there were some good games there - just not as memorable as the 1992 ALCS or either WS. The final game of the 1993 ALCS (October 12, 1993) was pretty good as the Jays went into the 9th inning with a slim 3-2 lead and scored 3 in the inning to put the game out of reach with a Devon White HR and Paul Molitor triple. Dave Stewart got the win, Duane Ward got the save.
While we're on the topic, anybody know where I could get an uncut replay of all the games of the 92 and 93 world series. I'm only 18, so I never got to experience it, but it would be fun to watch it. I have highlights of the games so that's not what I'm looking for.
The Blue Jays won every game for the rest of the season.
^^^ hopefully they'll release the 92 and 93 world series as one of those collector's edition sets because those were two great world series'.
I dont remember any games for some reason.
Wut stands out is the Walk off home run Vernon Wells hit off of Rivera. The place went nuts. That game was the pinnacle of the Roy Halladay era.....sadly
It was in April in 2006 when Vernon Wells hit 3 home runs and Troy Glaus hit two in the same game it was awesome. I was at the game, the atmosphere was amazing and when BJ Ryan came in at the end of the game the crowd just lost it. We were so happy (at the time) to see BJ Ryan come in and shut the door, that has to be one of the greatest in my opinion but thats only because I was at the game.
