ESPN Classic remembers Darryl Kile
The St. Louis Cardinals and Major League Baseball lost one of its leaders on June 22 when 33-year-old pitcher Darryl Kile was found dead in his hotel room. Kile, who had a 5-4 record with a 3.72 earned run average in 14 starts, leaves behind a wife and three children.
Darryl Kile tosses a no-hitter as the Houston Astros beat the New York Mets, 7-1. Kile (15-6) struck out nine and walked one. Backed by excellent plays from third baseman Ken Caminiti and shortstop Andujar Cedeno in the seventh inning, Kile threw Houston's first no-hitter since Mike Scott clinched the NL West championship with a 2-0 victory over San Francisco on Sept. 25, 1986.
"The only thing I can think of that would be more exciting would be to win the seventh game of the World Series," Kile said.
