Padres’ Despaigne loses no-no in 8th

Odrisamer Despaigne took a San Diego Padres no-hitter through 7⅔ innings Sunday but lost it on a double by the New York Mets’ Daniel Murphy. The two-out hit marked the 7,264th game without a no-no for the San Diego Padres, the only team without one.

The 27-year-old Cuban-born right-hander then gave up a David Wright RBI single to lose the lead for a 1-1 tie before he was pulled by manager Bud Black after 123 pitches. The Padres won on a walk-off infield single in the bottom of the 9th.

The last team to exit the no no-no club was the Mets, of course, who in 2012 ended the league’s longest streak from birth at 8,019 games when Johan Santana no-hit the Cardinals.
