Mets pitchers set record by starting season 0-for-46 at plate

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.

Mejia is the main offender, as he's gone 0-for-14 on the year. Also, a tip of the cap to Bartolo Colon for managing to strike out in 66.7 percent of his plate appearances. On the other side of things, let's give credit to Jon Niese, who, although obviously hitless thus far, boasts an OBP of .500 thanks to his somehow drawing four walks. Niese also has an RBI.

Congratulations, Mets!
