In its 50th year, the New York Mets franchise finally has a no-hitter.

Johan Santana’s 134 pitch outing on Friday night in an 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals, the best statistical offense in the National League, included eight strike outs, five walks and two plays that ended the longest active streak in a team’s history without a no-hitter.

Former Met Carlos Beltran ripped a ball down the third-base line in the sixth inning that landed on the chalk, but was ruled foul by third base umpire Adrian Johnson. Replays showed it should have been ruled fair.

Then in the following inning, Mike Baxter ran full speed, crashing shoulder first into the left field wall to rob Yadier Molina of a hit. Baxter winced in pain on the ground for several minutes before leaving the field with a trainer cradling his left arm and shoulder.

The Met offense was powered by Lucas Duda, who drove in four runs and smacked his third home run in the last two days. Daniel Murphy drove in three runs and David Wright had an RBI and scored twice.

Josh Thole, who appeared in his first game since suffering a concussion on May 7th against the Phillies, returned on Friday night to catch the 275th no-hitter in Major League Baseball’s history, and third this season.
