New York Mets First No-Hitter –

New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in the history of the franchise.  It took slightly more than 8,000 games for a Mets pitcher to throw a no-hitter but the drought ended last night.  The 8-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals was the third win of the season for Santana.  Santana threw 134 pitches in the game which marked a career high.  Santana had 8 strikeouts on the game and allowed five walks.  There were only 3 ground ball outs all game with 16 fly outs.  The New York Mets only had a two run lead until they scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and another three runs in the seventh.  The Mets are now 29-23 on the season.
