The Curse of the San Diego Padres

CURSE OF THE PADRES

0712_largeThe Boston Beaneaters,  Buffalo Bison, Chicago Whales, Columbus Buckeyes, Louisville Colonels, Pittsburgh Rebels, Providence Grays, Rochester Broncos,  St. Louis Terriers and the Worcester Worcesters and every other current Major League Team are all part of a club that only excludes the San Diego Padres.

The Padres are the only MLB team not to have thrown a no-hitter.  The New York Mets were the last franchise to join the club in 2012.

This is despite the fact that three Padres starters have won a Cy Young Award — Randy Jones in 1976, Gaylord Perry in 1978 and Jake Peavy in 2007. Other standouts like Kevin Brown and Greg Maddux have pitched for them. Still, not one has thrown a no-hitter for San Diego.

The Padres joined the league in 1969 as part of an expansion that included the Kansas City Royals, Seattle Pilots (now Milwaukee Brewers) and the Montreal Expos (now Washington Nationals). In 1977, the Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays were added, followed by the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies in 1993 and the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 1998. Here are the no-hitter records for each expansion team:

  • 5 No Hitters Seattle Mariners and Florida Marlins
  • 2 No Hitters Arizona Diamondbacks
  • 1 No Hitter Colorado Rockies; Milwaukee Brewers;  Tampa Bay Rays;  Toronto Blue Jays;
  • None San Diego Padres

During this same period,  the California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers each threw 8 no-no’s, while the Oakland A’s, Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals threw 6. More Info:

THE CLOSEST THEY HAVE COME

Despite close calls, the Padres are the only members of the no no-hitters club.

On July 18, 1972, Arlin, a part-time dentist who occasionally did emergency work on umpires arriving in San Diego with toothaches, carried a no-hitter through 8 2/3 innings against the Phillies.

With a 5-0 lead and one out to go in the top of the ninth, he got two strikes on Philadelphia’s Denny Doyle. That’s when first-year Padres manager Don Zimmer thought Doyle, a lefthanded hitting second baseman, was going to bunt. Zimmer signaled from the dugout to have third baseman Dave Roberts move up about eight feet on the grass.

Doyle, connecting on an inside slider, hit a ball that bounced over Roberts’ head — a ball that he would have been able to field had he been playing in his normal position. Padres shortstop Enzo Hernandez couldn’t make the play. Arlin gave up a hit to the next batter, too, before closing out the 5-1 win. To this day, he’s still ticked about it.

“It was a case of Zimmer over-managing,” Arlin says. “Zimmer wasn’t the sharpest nail in the toolbox. He was growing into the job, but we knew he (Doyle) wasn’t going to bunt with two strikes. And he never bunted in his life. “Roberts knew he shouldn’t have been playing in. He took a couple of steps back, but Zimmer waved him in again. If Roberts were back in his regular position, it would have been an easy play. I wasn’t happy. Everything was working.” After the game, Zimmer knew that he’d made a mistake so came up to Arlin and handed him a razor blade, and “told me to go ahead and use it on him.” Arlin, of course spared Zimmer, who six year later would manage the Red Sox’s epic collapse against the New York Yankees.


Padres await first no-no, 41 years after closest call:  On anniversary of Arlin’s gem, Friars remain only MLB club without a no-hitter  (MLB.com)

For Denny Doyle it was not his first time breaking up a no-no.

Doyle, meanwhile, had already notched the lone knock in two one-hitters — against Nolan Ryan and Gary Nolan. “I remember looking in the face of those individuals and seeing that ‘you’ve got to be kidding me’ look,” Doyle said. “There’s only one time you get to see that look,” he added, referring to each time a starter surrenders his first hit.

The Padres have had two other no-no attempts fail with two-out in the 9th.

  • Chris Young v Pittsburgh Piratess at Petco Park (9/22/06) Pirate pinch-hitter Joe Randa hit a two-run home run with two out in the ninth. Young had two other no-hit bids end in the eighth.
  • Five Pitchers v Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium (7/9/11) Five Padre pitchers also took a no-no to the brink.  starter Aaron Harang (six innings), Josh Spence (one-third of an inning), Chad Qualls (two-thirds), Mike Adams (one) and Luke Gregerson. Gregerson got the first two outs in the ninth before Juan Uribe doubled.

In addition, in 1997 Andy Ashby lost a no-hitter against the Atlanta Braves after Kenny Lofton led off the ninth with single. Fifteen other Padres no-hit bids ended in the eighth inning, including Randy Young who lost two in the 8th. Earlier this year, Andrew Cashner threw the Padres 28th one-hit game that, but for one hit, would have been a perfect game.

To make matters worse, last year Padres fan had to watch the Giants’ Tim Lincecum throw the first no-hitter in Petco Park.


Is The No-No Jinx Real?
