Stringing together the low hit games

After Carlos Zambrano's no-hitter Monday, Ted Lilly, along with Jeff Samardzija, Carlos Marmol, and Bob Howry, pitched a one-hitter.

As I was looking for any similar feat, I did come across this stretch of three games the Mets had in 2003.

  • June 15, 2003 - Steve Trachsel throws a one-hitter against the Angels in Anaheim, surrendering only a sixth inning single to David Eckstein.
  • June 16, 2003 - The Mets then travel cross country to Florida and play the Marlins in Miami. Dontrelle Willis throws a one-hitter, giving up just a fourth inning single to Ty Wigginton,
  • June 17, 2003 - Jae Seo, David Weathers, and Armando Benitez of the Mets combine on a 1-hitter. Seo surrenders the only hit of the game, a fifth inning single by Juan Encarnacion.

The last time one time held a team to one or fewer hits in consecutive games was back on May 3-4, 1996, when the Rangers did so to the Tigers. Ken Hill threw a one-hitter on May 3, a first inning single by Bobby Higginson. On May 4, Roger Pavlik gave up only a 5th inning homer to Mark Lewis.

Yet the Mets still have no no-hit games by any of their stellar pitchers of yore. You'd think among Seaver, Koosman, Holtzman, Gooden and more somebody would have gotten over the hump.

In the same time period, expansion buddy Houston has thrown 10 no-hitters.

And worse, a couple of them are by an ex-Met! Nolan Ryan, why'd you leave NY?
