THAT A HUNG JURY I* ING IN TM£CRMINAL TR1AU OF THE PKO RAYER ...60 THE WAV I IT TAKE^ REAL Halicki's no-hitter 6th against Mets BASEBALL Continued from Page One no-hitter around the fourth or fifth inning. I started thinking what would happen if a guy got a hit but then I thought, so what, I've still got the shutout and the win and that's important to me. Actually, I always think about a no-hitter until the first guy gets a hit." Strikes Out 10 Halicki walked two, struck out 10 and allowed only four balls to reach the outfield. The Mets' only other baserun- nera were pinch hitter Mike Vail, who walked with one out in the sixth, and Del Unser, who walked with one out in the ninth.

But Halicki then picked up his tenth strikeout, fanning Felix Millan on three pitches. Ironically, Millan was the toughest batter in the National League to strike out last year. Oarrett Grounds Out Halicki completed his masterpiece when Wayne Garrett grounded the first pitch to first baseman Willie Montane/., who stepped on the bag and then hugged Halicki, who had come over to the bag to take a possible throw. The hardest hit ball off Halicki was a sharp line drive to left field by John Stearns, the first batter in the sixth. However, Gary Matthews caught it easily. The outstanding fielding play behind Halicki came in the first when right fielder Steve Ontiveros, normally an infielder, FIRST NEW YORK made a fine running grab Millan's foul fly. Jump Ahead Early The Giants nicked loser Craig Swan (1-1) for two runs in thfe first inning on Montana's bases-loaded single. Thomas started a twfrrun burst in the fifth with a twtoiit walk. He stole second, took third on Dave Rader's single and scored on the front end of a double steal. Rader th*n came home on a ThotndSson'l single. First Since'73 It was the sixth no-hitter against the Mets in their 14- year history and the first in the National Lftague since Atlanta'! Phil Niekro turned the trick against San Diego oil Aug. fi, 1973. The last no-hitter by • San Francisco pitcher wal by Gaylord Perry against St. Louis on Sept. 17,1968.
