The Official No-Hitter Banner

On June 1,2012 the Mets began a 4 game series against the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field. It was a night to remember as Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in Mets history. For more on his start see Johan Santana Gives Mets First No-Hitter. Johan became the first Mets pitcher to throw a no-hitter. With this in the record books the San Diego Padres are the only team to never have thrown a no-hitter. As well before the no-hitter the Mets went 8,019 without one. It was the 8,020th game in the team's history. The Mets won 8-0. Here are the notes of the game.


  • Johan Santana threw 134 pitches which was his career high. He threw 8 strike outs and walked 5 batters.
  • Carlos Beltran made his return and most notably with a blown call in the 6th inning when third base umpire Adrian Johnson ruled a fair ball that hit the chalk on the left side foul.
  • Mike Baxter made a game saving catch in the 7th as he slammed hard into the outfield wall. He was taken out of the game as Andres Torres came in at center as Kirk Nieuwenhuis who started at center moved to left.
