Mets 5, Padres 1

NEW YORK — For 7⅓ innings Mets rookie left-hander Steven Matz chased history. Instead, he settled for the best start of his young career. A dominant Matz held the Padres hitless until the eighth inning to lead the Mets. That's when Alexei Ramirez smacked a clean one-out single, which somehow stayed inside the first-base line and ended Matz's bid to join Johan Santana as the only pitchers in franchise history to record a no-hitter.
