Johan Santana tossed the first no-hitter in New York Mets history as New York crushed the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals, 8-0 on Friday night at Citi Field. The New York starter was helped by an umpire's missed call in the 6th inning and an outstanding catch in left field by Mike Baxter who was hurt in the process. After a string of close calls in their 51-year history, Santana finally finished the job in the team's 8,020nd game since the franchise was born in 1962. After sitting out the entire 2011 season, Santana threw 134 pitches on Friday, 26 more than the 108 he threw on May 8th, his previous season high.
