Will Jon Niese join this list? Tune in to his next two starts to find out!
With his excellent eight-inning outing last night, Jon Niese registered his thirteenth straight start in which he completed at least six innings. That may not sound like much, but it's a rare occurrence than you might think. If Niese can keep the streak going for a couple more games, he'll join a rather exclusive group of Mets starting pitchers.
In Mets history, there have been 35 streaks of 15 or more games with 6 or more innings pitched. 17 unique pitchers have achieved the feat at least once with the Mets. Can you name them?
As is usually the case, some answers are tougher than others. You need only enter a last name in order to get credit for a correct answer on the quiz. In honor of the innings-pitched requirement, the timer is set to six minutes.
Post your time and score — out of 35 — in the comments. Good luck!
