Aroldis Chapman had a little trouble finding the zone in the ninth inning against the Mets on Saturday.

How much trouble did he have throwing the ball over the plate? Well he finished his outing throwing 19 pitches and only three found the zone, and at one point, 11 straight missed their target.

The final pitch of the brutal sequence actually hit Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo and forced in a run.

Chapman faced five batters Saturday. He walked three, hit one and gave up an infield single to another.

That's a recipe to get booed off your own field and that's exactly what happened as Yankees fans let Chapman hear it on his way off the mound.

Amazingly enough, this was not the first time Chapman has had such an outing in his career. He is the first Yankee ever to face five batters, walk three and hit one without recording an out, but he actually accomplished the same feat in 2010 with the Reds.

He is the only player to ever pull this off twice though, according to Baseball Reference.

Luckily for Chapman, Chasen Shreve came in and shut the door to help the Yankees beat the Mets 7-6.
