Cardinals Vs. Mets Preview: Don't Expect A No-Hitter Encore

The New York Mets got their first no-hitter on Friday night after waiting 8,020 games, and Johan Santana was the hero, but things are likely to go back to normal on Saturday afternoon. Well, at least as normal as MLB baseball allows. The St. Louis Cardinals will be looking for revenge after coming out on the wrong end of history, and they will turn to de-facto staff ace Lance Lynn (8-1, 2.54 ERA). Meanwhile, the Mets will respond with knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (7-1, 3.06 ERA). So if you consider a matchup between a red-hot knuckleball pitcher and perhaps the most surprising pitcher of the year a return to normalcy, then everything is indeed back to normal.

Here is the game time and TV broadcast information for Saturday afternoon:

Game time: Saturday, June 2, 3:10 p.m. CT

Location: Citi Field, New York, NY

TV: Fox Sports Midwest
