Padres right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne lost a no-hit bid against the Mets on Sunday with two outs in the eighth (GameTracker).

Daniel Murphy logged the first Met hit of the game with an opposite-field double. Despaigne then gave up an RBI single to David Wright, after which point he was lifted from the game. His day ended with five strikeouts, three walks and two hit batsmen. Of his 123 pitches, 75 went for strikes. Despaigne entered Sunday's outing with an ERA of 1.35 after four starts.

The 27-year-old Despaigne was signed by the Padres as an amateur free agent out of Cuba this past offseason, and he had been vying to become the first rookie to pitch a no-hitter since Clay Buchholz of the Red Sox in 2007. Also of note is that the Padres are the only current franchise never to throw a no-hitter. That remains the case after Despaigne's effort.
