its ok nick.....you can still hang your hat on the fact that it wasnt until the franchises 8020th game that a no hitter was recorded....still the highest count in all of baseball. we should all be rooting for the padres to have a no hitter of their own within the next 6 or 7 years to ensure us of having the highest game total of non no hitters.
Actually, as with all records for futility....
Was the Metsí no-hitter drought the longest in Major League Baseball history
No. The Mets streak lasted 50+ seasons. The Philadelphia Phillies were void of a no-hitter for 58 years, 1 month, 18 days between 1906 and 1964. The 8,945-game-long streak began on May 3, 1906, one game after Philliesí southpaw Johnny Lush threw a 6-0 no-hitter against the Brooklyn Superbas. It ended on June 21, 1964, when Jim Bunning threw a 6-0 perfect game against the Mets during a Fatherís Day doubleheader at Shea (a game seen in person by my dad).
