Seaver struckout the last 10 batters of the game on a start against the San Diego Padres on April 22, 1970. In the 51 years since, eight pitchers struckout nine consecutive batters – most recently Mets trump Jacob deGrom April 17 against the Rockies.

However, no pitcher was able to sniff out a tenth consecutive batter until Nola did so on Friday against Seaver’s former team — with the Mets wearing number 41 patches in honor of the late World Series winner.

While Seaver recorded his last ten outs through strikeout, Nola’s first ten outs were strikeouts. After reaching the first two batters of Friday’s game, Nola found his niche. He struckout the Mets in a row to get out of trouble in the first inning before striking out the side in the second and third.

In the fourth, Nola Michael Conforto fanned out on five pitches to equal Seaver’s record. Facing Pete Alonso with a chance to obscure the goal, Nola allowed a double field double.

Umpires stopped Nola on the way back to the dugout after the fourth inning to inspect him for possible foreign matter. After checking his hat and glove, the umpires cleared Nola of any suspicion.
