Update (8:42 PM): deGrom lost his no-hitter with two outs in the seventh. Pablo Sandoval laced a double into left-center past a diving Juan Lagares. He got Mike Morse to ground out to end the inning.

Mets fans in attendance at Citi Field are being treated to dueling no-hitters. Mets starter Jacob deGrom has held the Giants hitless through six innings, allowing only a fifth-inning walk, while Jake Peavy has been perfect through six against the Mets in his second start for the Giants. We’ll keep you updated as both pitchers attempt to do something special.

deGrom has been solid for the Mets since joining the rotation on May 15, but he has been on point especially lately. In his last four starts, he has a 0.66 ERA with a 30/5 K/BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings.

The Giants acquired Peavy from the Red Sox on July 26, sending Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree to Boston. Peavy has had a tough season, posting a 4.71 ERA with a 105/48 K/BB ratio in 130 innings.

    Don’t know if great pitching or horrendous offense by both teams.

    Both No-hitters are gone, Murphy got a double

    Half-hearted attempt by Morse.

      full hearted. unfortunately the heart wanted him to go in first

    If Morse weren’t a DH playing in the outfield (and Kung Fu pudgy didn’t break Peavy’s rhythm to have a boo-boo bandaged) Peavy might have gotten through the inning

      Morse broke in for a ball over his head. Perfect games do not usually survive an oops like that.

    Figures that Peavy would suck in the AL but do well in the NL.

  7. tomgiles1961 - Aug 2, 2014 at 10:12 PM

    I wonder which assessment got the thumbs down. Morse butchered both Murphy’s double and Wright’s single. He is an American League player, a DH who is sub par at any other position. As for calling Sandoval pudgy, that is a generous term for an overweight infielder in his contract year. Laziness will shorten his career and diminish his worth to his team. Stopping the game to get a bandage put on his shin is something little leaguers wouldn’t normally due until between innings, especially with his pitcher in a great groove. All in all I’m glad it happened because I’m a Mets fan.

    U suck Peavy. Always have, always will.

      And yet he somehow won a Cy Young award…

    ptfu = (p)eavy, (t)ake me, (f)eel me, (u)p.

    Didn’t know you were his husband.

      But we all know you’re everyone’s bitch.

    Missing Peavy so much, but so happy for his success.

    Degrom is pretty good. The Mets have A LOT of young
    quality arms. Degrom, Wheeler, Familia, Montero, Mejia
    Syndergaard, oh and Harvey!

  12. rje49 - Aug 3, 2014 at 4:12 PM

    I just want to know why the Red Sox can’t get good pitchers like Peavy!

  13. disgracedfury - Aug 3, 2014 at 8:00 PM

    Again proof that the NL is easy than the AL.
