When Jenrry Mejia grounded out to end the third inning Saturday night, he helped Mets pitchers make history. Said Mets pitchers have, at this writing, begun the 2014 season by going 0-for-46 at the plate. That's a modern-day record (i.e., from 1900 onward).
The current Mets had been tied with the 1914 St. Louis Browns, whose pitchers went hitless in their first 45 ABs of the season. The 1932 Red Sox check in at third with a 0-for-44 start.
