SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Rubby De La Rosa took an eight-hitter into the ninth Sunday, and the Arizona Diamondbacks chased Chris Heston after five innings in his first start coming off a no-hitter and beat the San Francisco Giants 4-0.

Heston pitched his gem against the New York Mets on Tuesday in his 13th major league start. His shot at matching Johnny Vander Meer's record of throwing consecutives no-hitters in 1938 ended with one out in the second when Jake Lamb doubled.

The rookie right-hander gave up three runs - two earned - on seven hits. He walked four and struck out two. Heston (6-5) had won four of his previous five decisions.

Chris Owings drove in two runs for Arizona.

De La Rosa (5-4) won for the first time since May 12, a span of six starts. He gave up eight hits, walked two and struck out six in eight-plus innings.
