Shutting Down the Cardinals
No-hitters come in all shapes and sizes and while Johan Santana dominated the St. Louis Cardinals, he did have to escape some trouble. Santana walked five on the night, including back-to-back walks in the 2nd inning before he bounced back to strike out two to strand the runners. Santana also received help from Queens-native Mike Baxter, who crashed into the wall to track down Yadier Molina’s seventh-inning line drive.
