On this date 22 years ago, Dwight "Doc" Gooden threw a no-hitter against the Seattle Mariners at Yankee Stadium.
Gooden, who was 31 at the time, had put himself into a jam in the ninth inning after walking Alex Rodriguez and Edgar Martinez. He then threw a wild pitch allowing both runners to move into scoring position. But Gooden dug deep and induced a strikeout and pop-up to finish off his no-no.
It was the only no-hitter Gooden threw over his 16-year career. He spent just two seasons with the Yankees (1996-97), but secured his second World Series ring with the team in '96.
Gooden owned a 4.67 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 67 appearances (53 starts) with the Yankees.
