Santana named NL Player of Week
By Adam Rubin
One week after R.A. Dickey captured the NL Player of the Week honor, the award went to Johan Santana.
All Santana did was end the Mets' streak of no no-hitter futility in the 8,020th game in franchise history.
The last time the Mets had consecutive NL Player of the Week winners was last season, when David Wright and Jason Bay received the honor consecutive weeks. The last time Mets pitchers won it back-to-back: 1983, when Jesse Orosco was recognized consecutive weeks.
