Wasn't there another World Series game between the Dodgers and Yankees where someone had a no-hitter going into the 9th but there was a dropped third strike and it allowed the runner to get on first and the next pitch was a base hit? I thought it was in 1941 but I might be making something up.
I know the game you're talking about, but it wasn't a no-hitter. The Dodgers were up 4-3 with two outs in the 9th when Hugh Casey threw a third strike that Mickey Owen dropped, allowing Tommy Heinrich to reach 1st base. The Yankees then proceeded to ring up a 7-4 lead, which they held. Owen was labeled the "goat" but much later Casey admitted that the pitch he threw was an illegal spitball.
