For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name every Met who made at least three consecutive starts without surrendering an earned run. It’s the third part in this streak-themed series, the first of which you can find here and here.

Every pitcher in Mets history to allow no earned runs in at least three consecutive starts

Two things to keep in mind: First, some of the pitchers listed here did give up runs during their streaks, meaning they weren’t technically “scoreless.” One pitcher actually gave up four runs in the one start. However, none of those runs were earned—a criteria we included to make the list long enough to give you a challenge.

Second, not all of the pitchers lasted long in each of their three-plus starts. One pitcher, for example, was ejected in just the third inning of one outing.

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