Johan Santana just tossed the first no-hitter in New York Mets history when he held the St. Louis Cardinals hitless on Friday night. How many times have the Mets been no-hit since the franchise joined the National League in 1962?

Last week's question:

Landon Donovan became the first player in U.S. Men's National team history to net a third hat trick while playing for the Stars and Stripes when he struck for three goals against the Scots on May 26th. Who are the ten other players to score at least three goals in a game for the United States?


Here's a list of all of the hat tricks in U.S. Men's National Team History. The ten players in addition to Donovan are listed in bold. Players with an asterisk scored four goals in a game:
