Our NoNoHitters.com count climbed to 7,543 games Sunday, a day in which the Mets lost to the Yankees 15-0.
I could go on and summarize how the Yankees scored all their runs, but what’s the point?
We’ll just say that Santana lost his no-hitter on the first pitch when Derek Jeter shot a single into right field, and it went downhill from there.
And for the record, Jeter’s single was the 934th time a Mets pitcher lost his no-no on the first at bat, as chronicled on our No-hitters killed by first at bat page.
Of the Mets’ games without a no hitter through this season:
- 934 games began with a leadoff hit by the Mets’ opponent
- 704 potential no-hitters were broken up by a single
- 145 potential no-hitters were broken up by a double
- 33 potential no-hitters were broken up by a triple
- 52 potential no-hitters were broken up by a home run
- 503 of those games were played on the road
- 431 were played at home (Citi Field, Shea Stadium or the Polo Grounds)
