Bob Knepper from the Chronology
Sep 21, 1986 - In his ML debut San Diego's Jimmy Jones pitches a one-hitter against the Astros allowing only a 3rd-inning triple to opposing pitcher Bob Knepper on the way to a 5-0 win. He's the first NL pitcher to debut with a one-hitter since Juan Marichal. Knepper is the only baserunner in Jones' near perfecto.
Jul 27, 1985 - For the second time in a week the Mets win 16-4 this time pounding the Astros in the opener of a twinbill sweep. They break a 4-4 tie in the 7th with a fielder's choice by Hernandez 2-run double by Carter and a 3-run HR by Ray Knight. All 16 runs are unearned as relievers DiPino and Medden each give up 6 and starter Bob Knepper allows 4 runs. Orosco is the winner in game 1 and earns a save for Latham first ML win in game 2 a 7-3 victory.
