Default Shelby Miller makes me recall Dave Stieb:

The Braves' Shelby Miller just missing a no-hitter by giving up a clean single up the middle with 2 outs in the 9th inning reminds me of Dave Stieb's amazing journey to a no-hitter.

Consider this amazing group of starts:

May 31, 1988 1-hit Shutout - single with one out in fourth

His last three starts of 1988:

September 18 4-Hit Shutout - first 2 single with 0 outs in 4th, but no one scored.

September 24 1-hit Shutout - single with 2 outs in 9th- (by Julio Franco)

September 30 1-hit Shutout - single with 2 outs in 9th - (by Jim Traber)

April 10, 1989 1-hit Shutout - single with 1 out in 5th (by Jamie Quirk)

August 4, 1989 2-hitter - double with 2 outs in 9th (by Roberto Kelly)

August 26, 1989 1-hit Shutout - single with 2 outs in 6th (by Robin Yount)


September 2, 1990 No-Hitter @ Cleveland

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

I had forgotten just how good Stieb was. Thanks for the reminder! BTW, you are spot on about external America.
