The First No No of 2015

The 2015 baseball season welcomed its first no-hitter on Tuesday night. Twenty seven-year old rookie Giant pitcher Chris Heston beat the Mets at Citi Field and ended the night with 11 strike outs. The Giants have now had a pitcher throw a no-hitter for the last four seasons.

Heston became the first Giants rookie to throw a no-hitter since Jeff Tesreau in 1912, joining a club that also includes Christy Mathewson (1901). Heston stayed dominant throughout and became the first pitcher to finish a no-hitter with three consecutive strikeouts since Sandy Koufax did so in his perfect game on Sept. 9, 1965, vs the Cubs, according to Elias.
