Johan Santana has thrown the first no-hitter in the history of the New York Mets. The 33-year-old ace of the Mets’ staff went the distance against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field without surrendering a hit in an 8-0 win.
Through eight innings, Santana had thrown 122 pitches while striking out seven and walking five. He faced the heart of the Cardinals’ order in the top of the ninth, retiring Matt Holiday, Allen Craig and David Freese to make history in Queens. All told, he threw 134 pitches. The final pitch of the game was yet another signature change-up from the two-time Cy Young winner that Freese swung over.
Johan expresses his feelings as “The greatest feeling ever”.
