In 1990 Andy Hawkins threw a No-No vs the Sox but lost for the yankees.

There were two huge errors that scored the runs, one was a drop by Jim Leyritz (sp) and I say the other was jesse barfield.
I have a friend who is insisting it was Mike blowers..

I have luch at Jimmy John's on the line..
Any help..

July 1, 1990 (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/chronology/1990JULY.stm#day1): Yankees Andy Hawkins throws the season's 6th no-hitter, but still loses 40 to the White Sox. With two out in the bottom of the 8th, New York's Mike Blowers (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/B/Blowers_Mike.stm) misplays Sosa's routine grounder for an error, and Hawkins walks two to load the bases. Outfielders Jim Leyritz (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/L/Leyritz_Jim.stm) and Jesse Barfield (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/B/Barfield_Jesse.stm) drop back-to-back fly balls to allow all four runs to score. Barfield loses Ivan Calderon (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/C/Calderon_Ivan.stm)'s fly ball in the sun and the ball bounces off his mitt. Ken Johnson (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/J/Johnson_Ken110.stm) in 1964 was the last pitcher to lose a no-hitter.
July 6, 1990 (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/chronology/1990JULY.stm#day6): In his first start since losing a no-hitter, Andy Hawkins pitches 11 2/3 innings of shutout ball only to lose in the 12th 20 to the Twins. Hawkins is now 1-6.

Actually according the passage I found you were both right they both made errors in that inning.

All three of them actually, but who's counting? I'd say this wager is a push.
