One-hitters by Mets pitchers


Although the New York Mets didn’t get their first no-hitter until 2012, the club came within one hit of the accomplishment 38 times. We’re now begrudgingly including two rain-shortened one-hitters by Tom Glavine and John Maine in 2007. Oddly, baseball rules consider rain-shortened one-hitters as one-hitters, but not rain-shortened no-hitters as no-hitters. Anyway, here’s the list.
