The last time San Francisco Giants rookie MLB starter Chris Heston face the New York Mets he no-hit them. This time was a little different.
By Robby Sabo
As fans of MLB we’ve all become familiar with mental blocks.
We remember guys like Chuck Knoblaugh and Steve Sax suddenly not being able to complete the simplest of throws from second-base. We remember certain pitchers suddenly losing all ability to throw to the catcher during an intentional walk scenario.
Towards the end of last year and throughout the 2015 season we’ve seen Chicago Cubs starter Jon Lester lose his ability to throw to first-base.
Now, San Francisco Giants rookie pitcher Chris Heston provides us a new gem.
Heston has no issues throwing to first-base. Even New York Mets fans witnessed this earlier in the season when he no-hit their club.
Last night, in a strange manner, he attempted to pick up Curtis Granderson with nobody covering first-base. Brandon Belt was playing off the bag. The throw caused Grandy to retreat to first, but then eventually hustle to second.
In the end, Heston wasn’t punished for his mistake as the Mets stranded Granderson at second-base in New York’s 3-0 victory over the defending champs.
