Mets Reach Rare Air In Colorado

Posted by Steve Lombardi on May 27, 2008

Last Sunday, the Mets did something that's only been done once before in baseball history.  What was it?

Playing in Colorado, holding the Rockies to 3 hits (or less) in the game - and losing the contest.

Thanks to Baseball-Reference.com's Play Index Pitching Game Finder, it's easy to see how many times this rare feat has been done:

    I'm quite amused by them both being exactly 3 hits, with a 4-1 score (even if the way that they got to that score was very different).
