NEW YORK -- Only a few innings in, the question for Johan Santana became not how many hits he would give up, but how many home runs. Robinson Cano homered twice, and combined with Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones for three straight homers in the third inning as the New York Yankees thrashed Santana and the New York Mets, 9-1, Friday night at Yankee Stadium. To further humble Santana and his teammates, who were attempting to take the glow of last week's no-hitter into the Subway Series opener, Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda looked like he might just pull off his own no-hitter. While Kuroda lost his bid in the sixth inning on a double by Omar Quintanilla, the Yankees finished with a two-hitter. Cody Eppley pitched a hitless inning before Lucas Duda doubled in a run off Ryota Igarashi in the ninth to follow Kuroda's seven shutout innings. The Yankees bashed Santana in his first start since last Friday's no-no, scoring six runs on seven hits in five innings and leaving h...

Santana's future in fate's hands

Every once in a while you run across a landmark moment in a baseball season, so compelling it becomes larger than life and, yes, even larger than an in-your-grill tabloid headline. It'd be one thing to obsess over this weekend's Subway Series -- the Yankees and Mets are the Saudi Arabia of rivalries, an endless resource -- but the most important story will occur Friday night...

Don’t Blame Collins For Santana’s Bad Start

SANTANA: Didn't have it. There’s a lot of reasons to like Terry Collins, and falling on the sword last night for Johan Santana’s bad outing is another one of them. Collins lamented all week of running up Santana’s pitch count. He did it again after the Yankees shelled Santana last night, saying all those home runs was the result of rust. “I am responsible for the way...

"Rusty" Santana gets lit up by Yankees

One week after Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in franchise history, it was the Mets who found themselves in danger of being no-hit. Santana struggled mightily in his encore start at Yankee Stadium, serving up back-to-back-to-back home runs in the third inning Friday and four homers total during a 9-1 loss to the Yankees. Santana appeared to pick up right where he left...

Mets-Yankees Preview

Johan Santana made history the last time he took the mound. A win over the New York Yankees might be satisfying enough this time. Coming off the first no-hitter in the history of the New York Mets, Santana will be well-rested when he takes the mound at Yankee Stadium on Friday night for the first installment of the 2012 Subway Series. Santana (3-2, 2.38 ERA) cemented his status...

Yankees rough up Santana, Mets

NEW YORK -- Only a few innings in, the question for Johan Santana became not how many hits he would give up, but how many home runs. The buzz from Santana throwing the first no-hitter in New York Mets history last Friday ended with a thud Friday night in the Subway Series opener at Yankee Stadium. The New York Yankees slammed him back to reality in a 9-1 win as Robinson Cano...

2012 Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: Can Santana keep it going against the Yanks?

There were more games than most Thursday's last night, but it remained a rather uneventful evening. The biggest news may be that Aroldis Chapman will not go the whole season without giving up a run. The Reds lefty finally gave up an earned run in his 30th inning of work this season, raising his ERA to 0.30. It was one of those nights when you could get concerned when you looked...

Subway Series Take II: Mets Seek To Even Score V. Yanks: Mets Lineup Vs. Yankees - June 9, 2012

  The Mets were taken down a peg last night by the Yankees in an embarrassing performance by Johan Santana and his mates. Tonight the Mets look for revenge as Dillion Gee opposes Phil Hughes. Once again Lucas Duda will DH and Captain Kirk will patrol RF, as the injured Omar Quintanilla will start at SS. Last night's game isn't as cataclysmic as the sports papers and...

Subway Series Game Preview: Mets @ Yankees

The natural story line for this game would be Subway Series, is Interleague play relevant, last actual event of interleague play, blah blah. However, today the story line is Johan Santana. Eight days ago Johan made history as he became the first pitcher in Mets history to throw a no-hitter and raise the spirits of queens. On a week’s rest after throwing more pitches than he has...

Mariners throw combined no-hitter

Six Mariners pitchers combined on a no-hitter of the Dodgers during a 1-0 win in Interleague play. The team's starter got hurt.

Kuroda flirts with no-hitter in win over Mets

Johan Santana was the toast of the town for the past week after throwing the New York Mets' first no-hitter in franchise history. On Friday night, Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda flirted with New York's second no-no in seven days. Kuroda carried a no-hitter for 5 2/3 innings before Mets shortstop Omar Quintanilla broke up the bid for history with a double to left-center...

Subways Series: Yankees Girardi might change his answer

Girardi & Collins - 06-08-2012 Before the Yankees 9-1 blowout of the Mets in the first game of the Subway Series, I had the opportunity to meet the both New York skippers at a Dunkin Donuts promotional event at The Stadium. Joe Girardi and Terry Collins were all smiles but my guess is the Mets skipper is not so happy after the Bombers took batting practice on his ace Johan Santana...

Subway Series Game 1: Forgettable night for Mets

There was only one positive thing about attending another Met game with Squawker Lisa that ended in a shambles for my team. Lisa spent two innings on a long, slow-moving drink line because she wanted to check out the Malibu party deck and got back to our seats in the top of the sixth. She looked at the scoreboard and said, "Holy bleep, it's still a no-hitter!" On the...
