Pierzynski reacts to Johan's no-no
CHICAGO -- White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is very familiar with the only pitcher to throw a no-hitter in Mets' franchise history.

From 2000-03, Pierzynski caught Johan Santana with the Twins, and from 2005-07, Pierzynski hit against the southpaw as part of the White Sox. On Saturday, Pierzynski praised his friend's 134-pitch milestone that included eight strikeouts and five walks Friday night.

"He's one of the good guys I ever played with," said Pierzynski of Santana. "He's been through a lot the last couple of years with shoulder [surgery] and injuries. But to see him bounce back and do that was awesome.

"You always like to see guys you played with do well and especially the good guys you play with do well and have success. He deserves it and I hope he stays healthy and continues."
