Cubs Fact:

On September 25,1995, Cubs pitcher Frank Castillo threw eight-plus no-hit innings before surrendering an opposite-field triple as the Cubs went on to beat the Cardinals, 7-0.
Please don't feed the psychos.

That would make for a good question. Who hit that triple?

I'm trying to remember if McGee was still playing with the Cards at that time. Seems like a Willie McGee thing to do.

I think it was Ray Lankford or Bernard Gilkey, my memory always fails me with those two. I know it was the righty, but I can't picture it in my head, and can't be bothered to look it up.

Ray Langford was a lefty...so our powers combined say:

Bernard Gilkey!
And that's a bad miss...

Just looked at the box score for that game and it was Bernard Gilkey. That game Mark Grace also hit a triple, wonder how many times two triples have been hit in the same game in MLB history.
