It was cool how he thanked Crawford, Sandoval and Posey before walking off the mound.

Feel bad for Peavy. He's had a couple that went late into the contest this year only to lose them. One literally.
True. He's happy as a clam pitching well with a contender, great crowds, clubhouse, his first ML manager whom he said he'd die for, or something like that.

Bullpen better hold here.

Brewers made it interesting in the 9th but Giants hold on and Peavy gets the W!  Congrats Jake; finally!!!

Worst no hitter ever?
 
Starter can only go 6 and walks 5.  It takes 4 combined pitchers.  Nothing like Kershaw mowing down the opposing lineup.  

 
 
It's certainly on the list.  AJ Burnett's 9 walk, 1 HBP, 1 wild pitch no-hit performance against a terrible hitting Padres team has to be up there.  And so does Edwin Jackson's 8 walk, 1 HBP, 149 pitch effort.  The Astros' one above warrants mention (two innings by the starter, although it was against the Yankees), or the six-pitcher affair that Kevin Millwood started with the Mariners in 2012.  Dock Ellis' legendary no-hitter on LSD is probably also on the list.
 
The worst official no-hitter, though, is still probably Steve Barber and Stu Miller's 2-1 loss, which happened thanks to Barber's 10 walks, 2 HBP, and 1 WP in 8 2/3 IP.  The top of the 9th had 3 walks, one wild pitch (which scored the game-tying run), and a fielder's choice error to let in the go-ahead run.

I think any game in which the starter completes the no-hitter, or at least gets close, has to rank above this simply because it is harder for one pitcher to complete a no-no, both from a stamina perspective and the fact that hitters adjust better to the same stuff over the course of a game.  
 
The Astros game featured more pitchers but less overall walks and more strikeouts.

Cobb got a gift on that check swing call to Headley, but it's the Yankees, so idgaf.
