Vin Scully, on That Feeling

Vin Scully, during the top of the fifth inning of last night's broadcast:

Sandy Koufax was the only pitcher where I would get the feeling about a no-hitter with the leadoff hitter. I mean, Sandy would walk out to the mound, the fastball would just seem to be a blur, and then that big hammer curveball, and you'd say, "Oh my goodness, he's got great stuff tonight."

Oh and two.

It wouldn't be fair to link Kershaw and Koufax — yet.
