WATCH: San Francisco Giants pitcher Chris Heston gets first no-hitter of 2015

  • David Whitlock

The wait is over.  After five no-hitters in 2014 (first being in May), 2015 has had their first no-no.  And once again it was a San Francisco Giants pitcher.  In fact, a Giants pitcher has thrown one in four straight seasons (2012 Matt Cain, 2013 Tim Lincecum, 2014 Tim Lincecum).  Watch Chris Heston strike out the final New York Mets batter to secure the gem (via MLB.com)

Heston hit three batters, but had no walks or baserunners otherwise.  Add to that 11 strikeouts and 14 ground outs and there was not much driven.  The 27-year-old’s career has been obscure to say the least, in only his 13th start with 5 career wins before this, he notches what Roger Clemens and Greg Maddux could never do.  Pitch a no-hitter.  Amazing!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
