Mets Get First No-Hitter

That’s one for the books. Johan Santana pitched through the St. Louis Cardinals’ lineup during Friday’s game, resulting in the first no-hitter in history for the Mets. The resulting 8-0 score marked the end of a no-hitter drought since 8,019 games ago when the team was inaugurated in 1962. Santana, who spent all of last season on the bench recovering from shoulder surgery, described his record game as “the greatest feeling ever.”
