The Chicago Cubs’ Kosuke Fukudome hit a Nelson Figueroa pitch to right field for a single Tuesday to boost the NoNoHitters.com count to 7,339 New York Mets games without a no hitter.
The Brooklyn-born Figueroa, making his third start for the Mets, looked strong in his first two appearances for the club. But he walked five and gave up three runs in the fourth inning Tuesday during the Mets’ 7-1 loss.
A no hitter? Try a 14 hitter.
