For the first time in club history a pitcher for the New York Mets has thrown a no-hitter.
Friday night in the big Apple, Johan Santana accomplished the feat as the New York Mets defeated the Saint Louis Cardinals 8-0.
But should Santana have been credited with a no-no? According to the Associated Press, Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran had a base hit down the line, but it was called foul by umpire Adrian Johnson. The replay clearly showed that the ball hit the foul line, meaning it should have been fair, not foul.
Santana becomes the third pitcher to throw a no-hitter this season joining Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox.
