OMG – OMG – OMG!!!
DON’T MESS WITH THE NO-HAN!!!!
After 8,019 regular season games spanning 50 years without a no-hitter in Mets history,Johan Santana tossed the Mets’ first no-hitter Friday in a 8-0 win over the Cardinals.
The Cy Young Award winning southpaw tossed 134 pitches in the effort, and was simply brilliant, pitching the best game of his career in front of a crowd of 27,069 in Flushing.
World Series MVP David Freese came to the plate with two outs and the count ran to 3-2 before Santana struck him out to end the game and write himself into the history books!
Note from Joe D. – This was one of the most memorable nights of all time for me on MMO. My hands were trembling and tears were flowing as I wrote this. I’ll never forget the emotions that were flowing that night.
