On August 24 , 1974 — 1974 – Dave Roberts one-hits the Phillies, 1-0, in the quickest game in club history . Bob Boone’s leadoff single in the sixth is all that separates Roberts from perfection in a game that takes only one hour and 26 minutes to complete. Roberts needs just 86 pitches. Roger Metzger singles off Steve Carlton, plating Larry Milbourne in the eighth for the only tally.
