Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Chris) Bosio throws strikes. He has only marginally good stuff, but succeeds by throwing a variety of breaking pitches at constantly changing speeds, keeping the ball down, working fast, working inside and making hitters beat him." - Bill Mazeroski in 'Bill Mazeroski's Baseball' (1993)

Did you know that Chris Bosio attended Sacramento Community College, the seventh oldest public community college in California, and when he made it to the show in 1986, Boz became the fifteenth former Panther to appear in the Major Leagues? Bosio's first season left a lot to be desired, as he went 0 and 4, but the following year he won the first four consecutive games and finished the season with a winning record (11-8), and fourth overall in the American League in strikeouts per nine innings pitched.

Chris Bosio, on April 22, 1993 , became the second pitcher in Seattle Mariners team history to throw a no-hitter? Baseball Almanac is honored to present this exclusive description of that Chris Bosio no-hitter researched and written by author Rich Westcott ( RichWestcott.com / Rich Westcott Books ), original text from No-Hitters (McFarland, 02/15/2000, 'Chris Bosio', Page 353):

Chris Bosio No Hitter (Box Score: 04-22-1993 )

Signed to a four-year, $16 million contract during the winter, Chris Bosio was making his fourth start for the AL West's fifth-place Seattle Mariners when he faced the Boston Red Sox on Thursday April 22 before a crowd of 13,604 at the Kingdome. The 30-year-old Bosio was pitching with just three days rest instead of the customary four, and had a chest cold. His record was 0-1 as he squared off against the AL East's first place Bosox and Joe Hesketh.

Throughout the game, Bosio's fastball never ventured above 89 miles-per-hour. But he tamed the Red Sox on just 97 pitches, getting 17 outs on grounders while striking out four and walking two.

The two Bosio walked came at the start of the game. He passed Boston's first two batters, Ernest Riles and Carlos Quintana. After a mound visit from pitching coach Sammy Ellis, Bosio settled down and got Mike Greenwell to ground to second where Bret Boone quickly launched a 4-6-3 double play. Andre Dawson then struck out to end the inning.

Not another Boston batted reached base as Bosio retired 26 Red Sox in a row.

Seattle got on the board in the second, scoring one run after singles by Boone, Tino Martinez and Mike Blowers, and another on Dave Valle's force out. The Mariners added two more runs in the third on a walk to Jay Buhner and a two-run homers to deep left by Boone.

The Mariners scored again in the fourth when Blowers singled, stole second and scored on Valle's single. They closed out the score with two runs in the sixth on singles by Valle and Omar Vizquel, an error, and a single by Mike Felder.

Meanwhile, Bosio was giving the Red Sox fits. About the closest Boston came to getting a hit was in the fifth inning when Mo Vaughn stroked a hard two-hopper that hit a seam, took a bad hop on first baseman Martinez, and skipped off his glove. The ball bounced toward Boone, backing up on the play, and the second baseman made a bare-handed grab and threw to Bosio covering first to get the out.

In the sixth and seventh, Boston sent six batters to the plate, and all six grounded out. The spell was broken in the eighth when Vaughn flew out to center. Ivan Calderon followed with another ground out to third and Scott Cooper struck out.

Bosio began the ninth by getting John Valentin on a routine grounder to Vizquel at short. Tony Pena followed with an easy bouncer to Blowers at third. Then Riles stepped up, and chopped a 2-1 pitch over the mound. Vizquel raced in, snatched the ball barehanded, and fired to Martinez, beating Riles by a stride for the final out. Replays showed that Riles would have beaten the throw had Vizquel fielded the two-hopper in his glove.

That gave Bosio his no-hitter. In his next outing, Bosio broke his left collarbone in a collision at first base. Later in the season, he aggravated the injury during a brawl with the Baltimore Orioles. Bosio finished the year with a 9-9 record. The following season he made his sixth trip since 1990 to the disabled list.
