Santana to go for second no-no on Friday

The Mets just announced that Johan Santana, who pitched the first no-hitter in Mets history Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals, will open the three-game series against the Yankees on Friday night in the Bronx.

Assuming the Yankees remain on rotation, Santana will be opposed by Phil Hughes, who pitched a gem of his own -- a complete-game four-hitter in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Tigers and Justin Verlander.
