The Rays had a combined no-hitter this past week through 9 innings, but it didn’t count as one as they allowed a hit in the 10. Yesterday the Mets completed a combined no-hitter against the Phillies for the first real one of the season. After the game Pete Alonso compared seeing a no-hitter to finding a unicorn. As a reminder, last year there were 9 official no-hitters plus 2 more that didn’t count because they didn’t go nine innings, despite being scheduled as seven inning games. In other words, there were 11 no-hitters last year. With all due respect to Pete Alonso, in today’s game, they just aren’t that rare.
It was the 315th official no-hitter in MLB history.
