Rays’ Garza flirts with perfect game

The Tampa Bay Rays, one of only four Major League franchises with no no-hitters in their history, nearly resigned from that exclusive club Thursday night.

Tampa’s Matt Garza was perfect through six, losing his no-no when Jacob Ellsbury led off the seventh inning with a trickler through the mound for an infield hit. It would be the Boston Red Sox’ only hit on the night in which the Rays won 13-0.

The hit advanced the Rays’ no no-nos count to 1,802 games – still a far cry from the Mets’ 7,503 games – but a streak nonetheless. Here’s the latest on the Mets’ other no no-nos brethren:

  • San Diego Padres: 6,737 games
  • Colorado Rockies: 2,550 games
