Exciting, maybe, maybe not, but it sure is
The near-misses on perfect games/no-hitters may be just as, if not more, dramatic. Take Dave Stieb of the Blue Jays. He lost a no-hitter with 2 outs in the 9th inning (for the second time IIRC), then on his
very next start
with 2 outs in the 9th inning! It seemed like the guy was just cursed to come oh-so-close and never get one, but he finally did get a no-hitter a year or two later.
Edit: checked myself on wiki.. it seems he lost two no-hitters back to back but the lost perfect game was later.
