Mets’ Steven Matz has no-hitter through six innings vs. Padres

New York Mets pitcher Steven Matz has a no-hitter going through seven innings against the San Diego Padres.

He entered the seventh inning with a high pitch count, but made it through the inning on only nine pitches.

Matz has thrown 95 pitches so far.

After walking Travis Jankowski to start the game, Matz retired 15 consecutive batters heading into the sixth. He walked catcher Bud Norris to start the sixth inning, but was able to get through the order unscathed.

The 25-year-old is looking to become only the second Mets pitcher to throw a no-hitter in franchise history. Johan Santana recorded the team’s first no-no against the St. Louis Cardinals in 2012.

New York currently leads 2–0 in the game.
