Giants pitcher Chris Heston, in only the 13th start of his career, threw a no-hitter against the Mets at Citi Field tonight. If you look at the box score, you’ll notice he didn’t walk any batters, so why wasn’t it a perfect game? Because he hit three batters: two in a row in the 4th and one to lead off the 9th. According to Baseball Reference, no pitcher has ever thrown a no-hitter while hitting three or more batters. That’s pretty cool!
