Congratulations to New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana.
Santana tossed the first no-hitter in the history of the franchise.
Last night at Shea Stadium Santana shut down the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.
Santana threw 134 pitches on the night, 19 over his limit. Mets manager Terry Collins wanted to take him out but there was no way Santana was coming out of the game.
The Mets won the game 8-0. Santana walked 5 and struck out 8 on the night.
Let’s see what happens after 5 days of rest.
For all those years my man ‘Carmine’ pitched for the Mets, he was never able to throw a no-hitter.
