The New York Mets made another entry in the record books on Friday when the franchise participated in its 10,000th no-hitter.
“This club is no stranger to remarkable pitching performances,” said GM Sandy Alderson. “Over the years, we’ve been no-hit a total of 9,999 times. You could almost say the team is built to be humiliated like that.”
Johan Santana, a pitcher many thought was washed-up, tossed the gem against the Cardinals.
“It’s truly an honor to be the only guy in Mets history to pitch like this,” he said. “It’s totally worth the surgery I’ll have to endure after throwing 134 pitches. Thanks Terry!”
