NEW YORK (AP) — Mets ace Johan Santana will get two extra days of rest after his no-hitter.

The team says Santana will make his next start Friday night at Yankee Stadium in the opener of the Subway Series.

Santana threw a career-high 134 pitches Friday night against St. Louis in the first no-hitter in team history. The Mets have been trying to get Santana additional rest this year after he missed last season while rehabilitating his surgically repaired left shoulder.

The Mets said Monday that Santana won’t pitch in this week’s series at Washington. Instead, he’ll face the Yankees in the New York interleague opener in the Bronx.
