On the final day of the 1975 season, the 6'6" Abbott combined with three other A's
pitchers (Vida Blue, Paul Lindblad, and Rollie Fingers) to no-hit the Angels. Claimed
by Seattle in the expansion draft in 1977, he played for the Mariners longer than
any other player on their original Opening Day roster, twice winning 12 games. He
missed the entire 1982 season due to illness.
»April 27, 1984: Mike Hargrove's bases-loaded double in the top of the 19th inning leads Cleveland to an 8–4 win over Detroit in a game that takes five hours and 44 minutes to complete.

It is only the 2nd loss of the season for the 16–2 Tigers.
