In last Thursday's 5-2 win over the Brewers, Bartolo Colon threw seven strong innings, allowing just one run on eight hits, while striking out two and walking none. It was Colon's fourth start this year in which he walked no batters.
For this week's Mind Boggler, we're asking you to name other Mets control artists. Specifically, we'd like you to name every pitcher in Mets history to walk fewer than two batters per nine innings in a single season.
Mets pitchers with fewer than 2.00 BB/9 in a single season.
This year, the Mets have two of the top five pitchers in baseball in terms of BB/9. Noah Syndergaard is third with 1.41 BB/9, and Colon is fifth with 1.60. To qualify for this quiz's list, the pitcher needed to throw enough innings—at least 162.0—to qualify for the ERA title.
You'll have three minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
