- Sensational Santana’s No-Hitter •
Date: June 1, 2012
Johan Santana’s no-hitter against the St. Louis Cardinals was the first ever no-no authored by a New York Mets starter, despite 50 years of great pitchers. Ironically, Tom Seaver, who pitched five one-hitters for the Mets, got his only career no-hitter against the Cardinals as a member of the Cincinnati Reds. Nolan Ryan, who also tossed a one-hitter for the Mets in 1970, completed an MLB record seven no-hitters, inlcluding one 37 years to the day before Santana’s.
