Johan Santana, who threw his first shutout since undergoing 2010 shoulder surgery in his last start, looks to get the New York Mets off to a fast start in their four-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Santana (2-2, 2.75 ERA) was stellar in his previous start last Saturday, allowing just four hits during his first shutout since undergoing elbow surgery in 2010.
The Mets' left-handed ace will be opposed by Adam Wainwright, who started slowly as he returned this season from elbow surgery of his own but has won his last two starts while surrendering just one run over his last 15 innings.
