The amazing thing to me is that Millwood authored a No-Hitter in 2003 and here we are almost a decade later and Milwood is the starting pitcher in a second no-no.
Both No-Hitters were won by a score of 1-0. I wonder how many pitchers have started multiple no-hitters won by that narrow margin.
I definitely do not put the combined No-Hitter up there with the complete gamer, regardless it is quite an accamplishment for Millwood to be involved in 2 of them and win by the narrowest of margins.
In early May Kevin Millwood was the starting pitcher for the Mariners in a game that Team Phungo attended in Seattle. He was up against Justin Verlander - who is a No-no waiting to happen every outing. Millwood got off to a rough start that night and I thought to myself we may be witnessing the end of a career. As it turns out Millwood is having a fair year - good enough to keep him in the majors with the no-hitter an additional nice moment as well.
For the Collector
I either picked this card up out of a dime box or via a trade package. Most Highlight cards of non-superstars that were issued after 1974 can be picked up for a dime or less. I particularly like No-Hitter cards and have quite a few in the Phungo collection.
