NEW YORK - Jacob deGrom outpitched Jake Peavy in a tantalizing hitless duel that carried into the seventh inning Saturday night before the New York Mets broke loose and beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2.
Pablo Sandoval doubled off deGrom with two outs in the top of the seventh for the game's first hit.
Peavy was perfect until Daniel Murphy hit a one-out double into the bottom of the seventh on a ball that left fielder Michael Morse misjudged. The Mets went on to score four runs to back deGrom (6-5), and the rookie won win his fifth straight start.
Peavy (1-11) lost his 11th decision in a row, a streak that started with Boston.
This was the second time this season that a game didn't have any hits until there were two outs in the top of the seventh inning. Milwaukee's Matt Garza and Atlanta's Aaron Harang each had their no-hit bids broken up in the seventh on April 2.
