Mets Vs. Cardinals, Game 2: R.A. Dickey Takes Mound As New York Mets Attempt To Follow Johan Santana No-Hitter

How does an MLB team follow one of the greatest nights in franchise history?

The New York Mets will find out Saturday when they host the St. Louis Cardinals one day after Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in club history.

R.A. Dickey (7-1, 3.06 ERA) will take the mound for the Mets during the second leg of their four-game set, and he'll have a tough act to follow.

Complete Reaction To Johan Santana's No-Hitter

Santana struck out eight, including David Freese for the game's final out, for the first no-hitter ever by a Mets pitcher.

Dickey has allowed just one run over his last two starts, striking out 21 over that span. Prior to recording double-digit strikeouts in each of his last two outings, the knuckle-baller had managed the feat just once in 114 prior starts.

Lance Lynn (8-1, 2.54 ERA) will get the start for the Cardinals as they look to snap a three-game losing skid.
