Chris Heston, the San Francisco Giants’ right-hander who is in their rotation because Matt Cain isn’t, and is a Giant though they released him not two years ago, on Tuesday night no-hit the New York Mets at Citi Field.

“I’m still not sure what just happened out there, to be honest with you,” Heston told reporters afterward.

When he celebrated, it was for a special game, the 288th no-hitter in league history and the 17th for the Giants. For a win, too, 5-0 over the Mets. Heston might also have been honoring a journey of some mileage.
