July 13, 2004
David Cone struck out nine batters in six innings for the win on a Friday night at Riverfront Stadium. In the bottom of the sixth he struck out the side on nine pitches. According to baseball- almanac.com, this has only happened 37 times in the history of major league baseball. Cone was the second Met pitcher to do this, with Nolan Ryan being the first on April 19, 1968.
Cone's nine-pitch victims were Herm Winningham, Randy Myers, and Mariano Duncan.
This was the first major league game for Mets OF Terry McDaniel, who came into the game in an eighth inning double switch. McDaniel wound up the season 6-for-23 with eleven strikeouts, was waived in November and claimed by Pittsburgh, but never made it back to the majors.
