April 14 (Bloomberg) -- New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey’s bid for the first no-hitter of the 2013 Major League Baseball season ended with two outs in the seventh inning as Minnesota Twins Justin Morneau hit a home run.

Harvey (3-0) did get the win, allowing one run on two hits and striking out six in eight innings last night at Target Field in Minneapolis as the Mets (7-4) defeated the Twins 4-2. Bobby Parnell tallied his first save, giving up one run on two hits and striking out two in the ninth inning.

“I was blowing it foul, but I knew he hit it pretty well,” Harvey said about Morneau’s drive as it approached the right-field foul pole. “If it was going anywhere, it was going out.”

Marlon Byrd started the Met’s four-run fifth inning with a home run. Collin Cowgill, Daniel Murphy and David Wright added run-scoring singles.

Twins starter Scott Diamond (0-1) allowed four runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings as Minnesota fell to 4-7.

“The way the first four innings went, getting out of the third inning I was pretty pumped by that and thought it was a big step,” Diamond said. “Just the way the fifth kind of sped up on me, they put a lot of hits together in that inning. You know, a little frustrating.”
