On July 4, 1972, New York Mets ace Tom Seaver took a no-hitter into the ninth inning against the San Diego Padres. After recording the first out, Padres outfielder Leron Lee singles to spoil the no-hit bid. Seaver induces Nate Colbert to hit into a game-ending double play.
On June 14, 1962, the New York Mets took a beating from the Houston Colt 45s, 10-2. Mets starter Jay Hook pitched to six Houston hitters in the first and didn’t record an out, allowing six runs (four earned) and five hits. The 45s scofred seven runs in the first and never looked back.
