Five Pitchers Combine for a No-Hitter as the Mets Beat the Phillies 3-0

I was not at the game last night, but I saw most of it on TV.  When you watch a game, you never know what will happen.  Last night five Met pitchers combined for a no-hitter against the Phillies.  The five pitchers were:
  • Tylor McGill
  • Drew Smith
  • Joely Rodriguez
  • Seth Lugo
  • Edwin Diaz
Tylor Megill, W (4-0)50003501.931888532811143730690.2770.970.22%1.262.4
Drew Smith, H (6)1.10001400.005362413740000000.0870.900.07%1.170.7

It was only the 17th combined no-hitter in MLB history and only the second by the New York Mets.  On June 1, 2012, Johann Santana pitched a no-hitter for the first time in the 50-year history of the Mets.  There was some controversy as a ball that hit the foul line in left field was called foul.  Had there been replay in 2012, the batter would have been awarded a double.  The pitch count for Santana was 132 which may have ruined his arm.  The pitch count for the five last night was 159 included 6 walks and many 3-2 counts.

It is certainly a time for Met fans to celebrate as we are 15-6.
