The Mets Johan Santana threw the first no hitter in the team’s history, blanking the Cardinals 8-0 on Friday night in New York. Santana’s No Hit gem featured eight strikeouts, including David Freese for the final out of the game. The Cardinals did draw five walks in the game. There was controversy with the No Hitter. It appeared in the Cardinals 6th inning, that Carlos Beltran had a hit down the third base line, but 3rd base umpire Adrian Johnson called it a foul ball. The replays showed the ball hit the line beyond 3rd base. In fact, you could see the ball mark in the chalk. Adam Wainwright surrendered seven runs in six and a third innings and took the loss to fall to 4-6 on the season.
