NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mets starter Tylor Megill and reliever Drew Smith have combined to pitch six no-hit innings against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Mets lead 3-0 at Citi Field on Friday night.

Megill went the first five innings. He struck out five and walked three while making his 23rd major league start.

Smith struck out three and walked one in the sixth.

Mets center fielder Brandon Nimmo made the most notable defensive plays of the first six innings, making running catches to end the first and second innings and then sliding to snare Jean Segura’s sinking liner to finish the third.

There hasn't been a no-hitter thrown in the majors this season.

Megill was the fourth pitcher to be pulled after throwing at least five no-hit innings this year. Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was taken out after seven perfect innings, San Diego's Sean Manaea left after seven no-hit innings and Padres teammate Yu Darvish came out after six no-hit innings.

In addition, six Tampa Bay Rays pitchers combined to carry a no-hitter into the 10th inning of a scoreless game against the Boston Red Sox last Saturday. The Red Sox broke up the no-hitter and scored twice in the top of the 10th but the Rays came back to win 3-2.

Johan Santana threw the Mets’ only no-hitter on June 1, 2012, when he struck out eight and needed 134 pitches in an 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
