Carlos Rodon's bid for perfection ended with 1 out in the 9th Wed. when he hit a batter, but he still achieved a no-hitter. Another such effort in Chicago, 9/2/72, came within a strike of a perfect game when the Cubs' Milt Pappas walked the Padres' 27th hitter, Larry Stahl, after being ahead in the count 1-2. He retired the next two batters, then forever blamed the ump for the walk. For our 2007 story on this, see: http://www.espn.com/espn/print?id=3019597.
