NEW YORK — Johan Santana pitched a four-hitter for his first shutout since 2010 as the New York Mets backed him with three home runs in a 9-0 win over the San Diego Padres in the National League on Saturday.

Santana’s last shutout in August 2010 came less than a month before shoulder surgery cost him the rest of the year and all of 2011. Santana (2-2) had gone without a decision in his last three starts, all Mets losses, and had six no-decisions in his first nine.
