On September 2, 1972, Milt Pappas of the Chicago Cubs pitches a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres and comes within one strike of hurling a perfect game. With two outs in the top of the ninth, Pappas runs the count to 1-and-2 on pinch-hitter Larry Stahl, but then throws three consecutive balls. Pappas argues with home plate umpire Bruce Froemming after the last ball, then settles down to retire pinch-hitter Garry Jestadt on a lazy pop-up. The Cubs win the game, 8-0.

The crowd, the largest ever to witness a no-hitter, endures the rain and six walks as the Indians right-hander completes the 3-0 victory, the eighth no-no in franchise history.
