The 1998 Marlins were 32-55 at the break and the '79 Dodgers were 36-57.
Colorado's best chance to score came in the fourth when Matt Holliday and Brad Hawpe hit consecutive one-out singles. Garrett Atkins dribbled a grounder to third baseman Wright, who threw to Damion Easley at second to start a double play.
Easley had trouble fielding the low throw but still got it to Delgado at first in time for the out. Hurdle came out to question whether Easley was pulled off the bag, which would have allowed a run to score, but umpire Chuck Meriwether promptly sent the manager back to the dugout with little argument.
Notes: Pelfrey hasn't allowed a run in a career-best 16 innings. ... Rockies RHP Kip Wells, who had surgery to remove a blood clot in his hand, will make one more rehab start Wednesday at Double-A Tulsa, Hurdle said. ... Mets OF Ryan Church (concussions) played catch before the game and could be back soon after the All-Star break, manager Jerry Manuel said. ... There was a moment of silence before the game for Bobby Murcer, the former Yankees great who died Saturday at the age of 62.
