Starting pitcher Matt Harvey continued to show that he has regained his Cy Young-caliber form as he threw six shutout innings in a 6-3 win over the Nationals. This was his first start since Aug. 24, 2013.
Harvey threw nine strikeouts while allowing only four hits and walking one batter, and he struck out Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper three times.
The Mets’ pitcher had shined in 2013 with a 2.27 ERA and 191 strikeouts with a 9-5 record.
The Comeback Player of the Year candidate was unable to play in 2014 though due to Tommy John surgery, but he made a spectacular return to the mound as the Mets’ hitters also stepped up to the plate.
Third baseman David Wright and catcher Travis d’Arnaud each logged two hits with two RBIs, and Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg was roughed up as he allowed six runs(three earned) in 5.1 innings.
