Did You Know?
  • This was the first no-hitter in Mets history, breaking a streak of 8,019 games over 50 years.
  • A controversial call by third base umpire Adrian Johnson in the sixth inning almost resulted in ejections for Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and third base coach Jose Oquendo. Carlos Beltran's line drive down the third base line appeared to hit the chalk just after it cleared the third base bag, but Johnson called it foul. Beltran then grounded out to third and Oquendo and Matheny bagan jawing at Johnson during Matt Holliday's at-bat. Oquendo confronted Johnson before Matheny intervened and argued the call, but no one was kicked out of the game.
  • Santana threw a career-high 134 pitches and it's speculated the workload ended his career; his previous high was 125 in 2008 and he'd only reached 120 pitches fives times in his career prior to the no-hitter.
  • He'd had shoulder surgery on September 14, 2010 and didn't return until April 5, 2012, but he looked like he was fully recovered when he started the season with a 2.38 ERA through 11 starts, including his no-hitter.
  • After the no-hitter, however, Santana pitched to a 8.27 ERA and averaged only 88 pitches per start before he was shut down in mid-August. He underwent a second surgery on April 2, 2013 but never pitched in the majors again.

  • Chris Heston hit three batters, a record for no-hit pitchers, including two in a three-pitch span in the fourth inning.
  • Only Virgil Trucks (vs. Senators on May 15, 1952 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit) and Bo Belinsky (vs. Orioles on May 5, 1962 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles) hit as many as two batters in their respective no-hitters.

Did You Know?
  • Max Scherzer's 17 strikeouts tied Nolan Ryan's record for most whiffs by a no-hit pitcher (vs. Tigers on July 15, 1973 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit).
  • His Game Score of 104 is the highest of any modern-era no-hitter.
  • Counting the postseason he became the sixth pitcher in the modern era to throw two no-hitters in the same season (Johnny Vander Meer, 1938; Allie Reynolds, 1951; Virgil Trucks, 1952; Nolan Ryan, 1973; Roy Halladay, 2010).
  • Scherzer was perfect through five innings before Kevin Plawecki reached first base on an error by third baseman Yunel Escobar.
  • Plawecki was the only Met to reach base.
  • This was the third of three no-hitters caught by Wilson Ramos (Jordan Zimmerman vs. Marlins on September 28, 2014 at Nationals Park in Washington D.C.; Max Scherzer vs. Pirates on June 20, 2015 at Nationals Park).
  • Ramos is the fourth catcher and one of four to have caught two no-hitters thrown by the same pitcher in the same season (Ernie Lombardi and Johnny Vander Meer, 1938; Yogi Berra and Allie Reynolds, 1951; Carlos Ruiz and Roy Halladay, 2010).
