Keeping Score: A record that should never be broken

Houston has been a house of horrors for the Mets, so I’m sure I won’t be sad to see less of the Astros once they move to the American League in 2013.

I didn’t realize I was witnessing history Monday night when Astros manager Brad Mills wore a path from the dugout to the pitcher’s mound. When he pulled starter Bud Norris with two outs in the seventh inning, Mills started an unprecedented parade of pitchers.

Beginning with Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who was the last batter to face Norris, seven consecutive Mets hitters each faced a different Astros pitcher. According to the SNY broadcasters on Tuesday, that’s never happened before in baseball history. I hope it never happens again.
