The San Diego Padres did not give their fans much to cheer about in their early days. Clay Kirby had the fans on their feet as he flirted with the team’s first No-Hitter against the New York Mets. However, after allowing a run in the first inning, Kirby trailed 1-0 and was lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth. The Mets would collect three hits in the ninth, winning 3-0.
