Johan Santana limited the Philadelphia Phillies to just two runs on three hits, but it wasn’t enough as his team couldn’t score him a single run during a 2-0 loss at Citizens Bank Park.
Santana lost his no-hitter on the opening batter when Jimmy Rollins homered to left, advancing our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,563 New York Mets games without a no-hitter. It was the 53rd time a leadoff hitter opened a game against the Mets with a homer (visit our No-hitters killed by first at bat page for more details.)
The game’s only other run came in the sixth inning, when Chase Utley homered to right.
The Mets’ only hits were a single by Jeremy Reed, a bunt single by Santana and a pair of single by Luis Castillo.
