Hard to see how this game by Bedard is better than the complete game no hitters of Tom Phoebus in 1968 against the defending AL champion Boston Red Sox of Yaz abd Petrocelli,and Scott, etc. or the Jim Palmer no hitter later that year against the Oakland As of Sal Bando,Reggie, Bert Campaneris, etc.
I think Mussina set the K record for a playoff game that year. Then the same post season, Eric Gregg one of the worst umps in the known universe ever. Gave Livan Hernandez a five foot strike zone(hyperbole of course) and he tied Mussina's record. Can't have an Oriole holding a record by himself after all.
I'm being quasi facetious but that still kind of irks me.
