|NO-NO DEFINED HIM IN SEATTLE.|
|WENT 9-9 WITH A 3.45 ERA IN '93.|
DEFINING THE PLAYER
- Chris Bosio was a middling starting pitcher with a 94-93 record, but he enjoyed one shining moment when tossing a no-hitter the same year this card came out. He pitched 11 years for the Brewers and Mariners, compiling a 3.96 ERA in just over 1,700 innings.
- Naturally, it was on April 22, 1993, when Bosio handcuffed the Red Sox 7-0 with the two-walk, four-strikeout no-hitter. It was preserved by shortstop Omar Vizquel's bare-handed putout of Ernest Riles' high bouncer over the mound on the final play.
- Bosio finished with a career-low ERA (2.95) and career-high innings pitched (234.2) in '89 for the Brewers. He was 15-10 and struck out a career-high 173.
FIVE FINAL FACTS
- He pitched the first seven seasons in Milwaukee, going 67-62 with a 3.76 ERA.
- Signed with the Mariners in December '92 and twirled the no-no in his fourth start, his second at home in the Kingdome.
- Bosio was coming off a rough stretch in his life in March '93: His home was robbed in California; good friend and Indians pitcher Tim Crews was killed in a boating accident; his grandfather died; and the woman living in the apartment below his in Phoenix during spring training shot her daughter before killing herself.
- Won 10 games during the Mariners' AL West Division championship run in '95 but was hit hard in the ALDS and ALCS, going 0-1 with a 7.62 ERA.
- In his second season as pitching coach for the Cubs.
