On this date in 2001, Curt Schilling of the Diamondbacks takes a no-hitter into the 8th inning against the Padres before Ben Davis breaks it up with a bunt single. Some observers claim that Davis broke an unwritten rule by bunting with a no-hitter on the line.
"I was mad that it was such a bad bunt and was still a hit. He bunted as bad a ball as you can bunt, to the most perfect spot in the infield to bunt it. I never said it was a horseshit play. I said it was a horseshit bunt." - Curt Schilling
