Mets leftover notes from Sunday night: Young, Paulino, Beato

Courtesy of Elias Sports Bureau:


Chris Young threw 7.0 shutout innings, allowing two hits against the Phillies last night…It was the ninth start of Young's career, all since 2005, in which he pitched at least 7.0 innings while allowing no runs and two or fewer hits…That ties Young with Jake Peavy for the most such starts for any pitcher over that span (2005-2011).



Ronny Paulino became the first Mets player to collect five hits in his first start with the club…Before Paulino, the last major league player to record five hits in his first start for a team was Hank Foiles for the Detroit Tigers on June 27, 1960 (also a catcher, also 5-7)…The last Met to have five hits in a game was Carlos Delgado on August 21, 2008 vs. Atlanta.



Pedro Beato has begun his Mets and major league career without allowing an earned over his first 17.0 innings…That is the second-longest such stretch in team history…LHP Jack DiLauro started his Mets career with 17.2 innings without surrendering an earned run in 1969.
