The Mets, fresh off of a successful road trip, come back home to the Nationals tonight. It feels like, at least recently, that the Mets fall flat in Colorado but Byrd helped reverse that by hitting a go ahead homer late in the game and making a key throw in the next half inning to keep the Mets in the lead. How rude of me. I forgot to wish you a HAPPY HARVEY DAY. Matt will be starting for the Amazin’s tonight as he goes up against Ross Detwiler. Matt Harvey is 7-1 with a league leading 2.05 ERA over 110.0 innings of work this year. He was dominant in his last outing going 6 shutout innings striking out 6 batters. He could have gone a lot farther, in fact it looked like during that game he could go the distance, if it wasn’t for the umpires calling a 30+ minute rain delay. His start against the Nationals earlier this year was a statement game as he allowed 1 run over 7 innings against Strasburg. The Nationals have the following numbers against Harvey: Desmond 2-4 LaRoche 1-5 Werth 0-4 Lombardozzi 0-5 Suzuki 0-5 Span 1-4 Ross Detwiler is 2-6 on the season over 11 starts pitching 60.1 innings with a 4.18 ERA.  He has struggled in his last two starts allowing 4 ER over 6 and then 7 ER over 3.2 innings. Last year he was 3-0 over 18.0 innings of work against the Mets posting a 1.80 ERA. The Mets have the following numbers against him: Wright 6-15, 3 2B, HR Buck 3-8 Murphy 1-7 Byrd 0-5 Young 1-2 Lets Go Mets! Tweet
