NEW YORK (AP) - Johan Santana threw seven sharp innings Thursday and the streaking New York Mets won their fifth straight game, beating the Colorado Rockies 7-0 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Santana (12-8) struck out eight and walked one in his first career outing against Colorado, allowing just four hits. The two-time Cy Young award winner closed out July with a 3-2 record and a sparkling 1.82 ERA in five starts.

Angel Berroa had a two-run double in New York's five-run second - its biggest inning since it scored five in the first at Washington on June 7. The Mets have scored five or more runs in just six of Santana's 21 starts this season.
