No one really had confidence in Santana. His lack luster performance last year coupled with his should surgery made him pretty forgettable, until Friday, June 1st. Johan Santana is now THE name in New York after pitching the first no-hitter in Mets history.
Now Johan is Mr. Unforgettable with his name in the Mets history book for a game against the St. Louis Cardinals that no one will forget. This was his second straight game shutout, and he walked 5 and struck out 8 and is now 3-2 with a 2.38 ERA, 1.03 WHIP (click here to find out what a WHIP means), and a 68-21 strikeout to walk ratio in 68 innings of work. Santana induced 18 swinging strikes, 3 ground ball outs and 16 fly ball outs.
Of the major pro sports, baseball is one of the longest and slow moving with little action from play to play. It’s always nice when events like this show up to add a little excitement.
Congrats to Johan! (And he’s pretty sexy too1)
