Name // Year of no-hitter(s) // Year as Met

Yogi Berra 3 (51, 51, 56) Met in 65
Joe Ginsburg (52) Met in 62
Jerry Grote (64) Met from 66-77
JC Martin (67) Met in 68-69
Jerry May (70) Met in 73
Duffy Dyer (76) Met in 68-74
Gary Carter (81) Met in 85-89
Brett Mayne (91) Met in 96
Mike Piazza 2 (95,96) Met from 98-05
Alberto Castillo (99) Met from 95-98
Eli Marrero (01) Met in 06

I could possibly see another player hitting 2 grand slams in one inning...but I can't see both of them being off the same pitcher in the same inning again.

I'm thinking Buehrle just took a large step closer to potential hall-of-fame-dom.

Over a span of two games on 8/23/72 and 8/29/72, Jim Barr of the Giants retired 41 consecutive batters (the last 21 Pirates and then the first 20 Cardinals).

200+ IP for the past 8 consective years. HOW RARE IS THIS? I asked it in a different post, but saw nothing.

2005 Postseason 2W, 1ND, 1S (very cool)

Hit his first HR this year, (only 40 career AB's)

2 no hitters, 1 perfect game.

Rarity all depends on the number of variables you want to include. For example, it might be pretty rare to find a switch-hitter who hit 3 home-runs in one game off 3 different pitchers all of whom were left-handed during the second game of a double-header on a Saturday that went into extra innings... etc, etc, etc.

But for fairly simple things, I think Fernando Tatis' (http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/LAN/LAN199904230.shtml) two grand slams in a single inning won't be duplicated soon or very many times.
