    And they got it! Another combined no-no!

    1962 expansion teams, total no-hitters

    Astros 12
    Mets 0*

    * - they list the one by Johan Santana where he allowed a double to Carlos Beltran, but - three-blind-mice umpire aside - I'm pretty sure you can't allow a double and really pitch a no-hitter.

    Last I checked — and I say this as a Mets fan — the Astros were a well-run team and the Mets were not.

    Both teams made the WS in the last five years.

    The real point is that the Mets allowed Nolan Ryan to leave. Though he only pitched one for Houston, the first four could have been in New York.

    Oh the irony - this was the same day that Derek Fisher - the guy traded for Sanchez et al - had to go to the hospital as he was hit in face by a routine fly ball.

    Verlander whiffs the Toronto side in the 8th -13 K and a no-no with 3 outs to go

    guy named Toro hits a 2-run HR with 2 outs in the top of the 9th to break a scoreless tie - then cleanly fields the last-out grounder.

    Verlander the 6th pitcher with at least 3 no-hitters - his second one in Toronto. no one else has more than one no-no in the same visiting park

    Most No-Hitters in MLB History

    Nolan Ryan - 7
    Sandy Koufax - 4
    Justin Verlander - 3
    Cy Young - 3
    Bob Feller - 3
    Larry Corcoran - 3

    I got Corcoran - 5-foot-3, 127 pounds - in the end-game of my 1880 draft, and he carried me to the pennant: 43-14, 1.95 ERA, 268 K in 536 IP at age 20.


    he went 170-83 in his first five years, pitching 2279 innings. then he got a sore arm, for some reason

    then he drank himself to death and died at age 32

    Does what he has done this year make Verlander a lock for the Hall of Fame?
