What the Foul?
NEW YORK — San Francisco Giants rookie Chris Heston threw a no-hitter against the Mets in a 5-0 win on Tuesday in New York.
Heston, in only the 13th start of his career, struck out 11 and gave up no walks. He was perfect on the night, except for the three batters he hit, thus ruining his chances for a perfect game.
Heston hit two straight batters in a row in the fourth inning and one to lead of the ninth. No pitcher in history as ever tossed a no-hitter and also hit three or more batters.
Heston helped out his own cause by going 2-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs.
The right-hander had already thrown a complete game this year, a two-hitter with 10 strikeouts in a 8-1 victory over the Houston Astros.
The 27-year-old went into Tuesday's game with a 5-4 record and a 3.88 ERA.
