Cardinals Vs. Mets: Johan Santana Working On No-Hitter

No New York Mets pitcher has ever thrown a no-hitter, but on Friday night vs. the St. Louis Cardinals, starter Johan Santana is two outs away from making history. Santana has blanked the Cardinals through seven innings, striking out six but also allowing four walks. The Mets' hitting, meanwhile, has helped them get out to a 5-0 lead, thanks primarily to Lucas Duda, who took Adam Wainwright deep in the sixth inning for a three-run homer.

In the top of the eighth, Santana will face second basemen Tyler Greene, a pinch hitter for reliever Sam Freeman and shortstop Rafael Furcal. Neither Greene nor Furcal have been on base tonight. If Santana was able to complete the no-hitter, it would be their first in over 8,000 games.
