The New York Mets and the Los Angeles Angels recently threw no-hitters, although they were different.
The one thrown by the Angels on Tuesday night was a traditional one, with one pitcher, Reid Detmers, completing all nine innings.
In the end, both gems have their merits and represent reasons to celebrate.
However, current Angels and former Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard took a shot at his old team with an Instagram story.
“Here’s Noah Syndergaard’s Instagram story after Reid Detmers’ no-hitter last night: ‘This is what a ‘real’ no hitter looks like’,” Mets beat writer for MLB.com Anthony DiComo tweeted on Wednesday.

He Is Having A Great Season
Widely expected to return to New York as a free agent in the offseason, Syndergaard opted to sign in Los Angeles on a one-year, $21 million deal.
Some fans were not happy with his decision and he is somewhat of a polarizing social media figure, so he may have a beef or two with the Mets organization and some of their fans.
In any case, it seems like an unnecessary shot at his former team.
Syndergaard himself is off to a good start of his Angels career.
He is 3-1 in five starts, with a rock-solid 2.45 ERA and a 3.37 FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching) in 29.1 innings so far.
He is still not showing the kind of strikeout upside we know he can boast (21 punchouts so far), but those will eventually come.
“Thor” is showing he is in top form after losing most of the last couple of years while recovering from Tommy John surgery.
