In a miserable offensive performance from the New York Mets, San Francisco Giants youngster Chris Heston throws a no-hitter.

By Robby Sabo

As New York Mets fans read the lineups and the pregame for tonight’s game against the defending champion San Francisco Giants, they saw and recognized a number of names.

Catcher and three-time champion Buster Posey is most definitely one of them. Posey has been a stud since his introduction to the big leagues.

Another guy is, of course, Madison Bumgarner, and not having to face the October hero from a season ago on Tuesday night felt like a blessing.

That was, until, 27-year old righty Chris Heston came into Citi Field and threw a gem of a no-hitter.

Heston sported a 5-4 record with a 4.29 earned run average on the season. Tonight, he allowed zero-runs, zero-walks and struck-out 11 Mets hitters during his nine no-hit innings. The only minor scratches on his night was three hit batsmen.

The last out came in the form of Ruben Tejada who stared at a two-seam fastball run backdoor on him.

This is now the fourth-time the Giants have enjoyed one of their starters throw a no-hitter in the last four-years, and is the first of the 2015 MLB season.

For the Mets, it’s the seventh-time they’ve been no-hit in franchise history.
