Throws first no-hitter in Mets history

New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana has thrown a no-hitter against the St Louis Cardinals for the first no-hitter in Mets history

The first out in the 9th inning was a first-pitch fly-out from Matt Holliday in center field. Allen Craig then flew out to left field for the 2nd out.

Santana faced third-baseman David Freese for the last out and here is the sequence:

Pitch 1 – 76 mph change-up for a ball
Pitch 2 – 87 mph 4-seam fastball
Pitch 3 – 70 mph change-up for a ball
Pitch 4 – 86 mph 4-seam fastball
Pitch 5 – 80 mph change-up foul
Pitch 6 – 78 mph change-up for strike 3

Santana finished with 134 pitches, 8 strikeouts, 5 walks for a no-hitter as the Mets win 8-0.

The Mets finished with 8 hits. Johan Santana improves to 3-2, and Adam Wainwright goes 4-6.

This was the third no-hitter in the 2012 season. White Sox pitcher Philip Humber threw a perfect game on April 21 against the Seattle Mariners, and Jered Weaver threw a no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins on May 2
