Top of the ninth inning, full count, one strike away from sealing the deal. Catcher puts down one finger, calling for the fast ball inside, you know you have the stuff to strike him out or at least get a ground out. So what do you do? Try to force a pitch on the outside corner, a change up, you miss your spot and the pitch stays up rather than low and away, this is the moment the batter sends it just out of the reach of your centerfielder, ending the no-hitter after 26 outs. You come back and strike out the next batter to end the game. Somehow you’re not happy about pitching a 1 hit shut-out. This is the closest you’ve come to dealing a no-hitter in 7.5 years. It is one of the most heart-breaking moments you’ve ever experienced in a video game, and all you can think is “what if I just threw the fastball?” I won’t be able to get this out of my head for a while...
