Celebration proves costly for Mets' Ramirez

NEW YORK -- Mike Baxter was not the only casualty of Johan Santana's no-hitter Friday against the Cardinals. Reliever Ramon Ramirez is headed for the disabled list after straining his hamstring while running in from the bullpen to celebrate.

Manager Terry Collins said there would be a corresponding roster move before Sunday's game against St. Louis at Citi Field.

"He was just running in. He hadn't even gotten to the pile where they were jumping on [Santana]," Collins said. "He was just so excited. He was running in, running hard and all of a sudden, his leg grabbed him. I've never seen that."
