The San Francisco Giants’ Fred Lewis lead off with a single up the middle off Pedro Martinez Tuesday night to bump the NoNoHitters.com county to 7,377 Mets games without a no hitter.
Once again, we had to update our No hitters killed by first at bat page, which we just did for the 18th time this season. That makes 896 of the Mets’ 7,377 franchise games killed by a leadoff hit.
Martinez had a great performance in the Mets’ 9-6 win, scattering three earned runs and seven hits over six innings. He also went 2-for-3 at the plate.
