The Mets finally join the ranks of the teams with CGs, thanks to Zack Wheeler.

Wheeler shut out the Marlins in Miami, allowing only three hits and fanning eight. The Mets tore a page from their '69 playbook and won the game 1-0.

The remaining teams without a complete game as we push past the 40% mark of the 2014 season are: Chicago Cubs, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates.

Then again, the MLB-leading team in this stat thus far (St. Louis Cardinals) has only four CGs.

No team cracked double figures in 2013 (Tampa had nine) or 2012 (Detroit and Cincinnati each had nine). You have to go back to 2011 for that--when five teams, led by the Phillies (18) managed to amass more CGs than we're able to count with two hands.
