Last week, Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma no-hit the Orioles in Seattle. It was the fourth no-hitter thrown this season. Cole Hamels, Max Scherzer, and Chris Heston threw the other three, with Heston's coming against the Mets on June 9 at Citi Field. For this week's Mind Boggler, we're asking you to name every pitcher in Mets history to throw a one-hitter.

One-hitters in Mets history.

Johan Santana famously threw the Mets' only no-hitter. He did so against the Cardinals at Citi Field on June 1, 2012, when he struck out eight batters and walked five in a 134-pitch effort.

There are a few qualifications for this list. First, the one-hitter had to occur over the course of a complete game. While most of these games were standard nine-inning performances, one went ten, and a couple of others were rain-shortened after five or six. Second, the list only includes regular season games—so Bobby Jones's postseason gem against the Giants in 2000 doesn't count.

You'll have five minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
