Shane Bieber becomes the first pitcher since 2006 to lead Major League Baseball in wins, ERA and strikeouts-- otherwise known as pitching's Triple Crown. The last pitcher to do it was Johan Santana of the Minnesota Twins. Photo: Joshua Gunter,
It's King Félix's birthday so let's take a look back at the time he hit a grand slam off Johan Santana.
Just on our air: "HE STRUCK HIM OUT! IT HAS HAPPENED! IN THEIR 51ST SEASON, JOHAN SANTANA HAS THROWN THE FIRST NO-HITTER IN NEW YORK METS HISTORY!"
Chris Sale is the... - 1st pitcher since Max Scherzer (May 11, 2016) to strike out 17+. - 1st LHP with 17+ K since Johan Santana (Aug. 19, 2007). - 1st Red Sox pitcher to do so since Pedro Martínez (May 6, 2000). - 1st pitcher to EVER strike out 17+ in 7 or fewer IP.
