Cubs pitching coach Bosio reflects on no-hitter

MINNEAPOLIS -- On Friday, six Mariners pitchers combined for a no-hitter. It was Seattle's first since current Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio did so on April 22, 1993, against the Red Sox.

Bosio's feat was pretty remarkable, considering he was pitching on three days' rest and had the flu.

Normally, Bosio would throw 38 to 40 pitches to warm up, but this time he cut it short.

"I threw my 25th pitch and tossed it in the stands and said, 'That's it,'" Bosio said Saturday.

He walked the first two batters he faced, but then settled down. Bosio said he wasn't even aware he had a no-hitter until the eighth inning, when one of his teammates told him. Bosio needed just 96 pitches to complete the game.
