As previously posted, Tyler Cloyd was making his major league debut tonight. In an unexpected spot start for the young righty, the Phillies were sure glad he tossed a solid six innigs to avoid a bullpen game.
Matt Harvey, a rookie starter for the Mets surrendered a run in the top of the first, a sacrifice fly from Ryan Howard which scored Juan Pierre.
Harvey did a bit of hitting himself tonight. In the top of the second, Harvey singled to left to score Scott Hairston, tying up the ballgame.
In Tyler Cloyd's first major league at bat, Cloyd walked. This occurred in the third, along with an RBI double from Jimmy Rollins which scored Kevin Frandsen. 2-1 Phils.
In the third inning with Ike Davis on base, Lucas Duda homered deep to right field, giving his team a 3-2 lead.
After the third, Cloyd settled in. His night would be finished after six impressive innings. He allowed three earned runs on seven hits, walking two and striking out five. Used his cutter and slider a lot ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Enjoy it while you can. The Mets plan to shut down Matt Harvey after 175 innings max, which is about three more starts.
While he’s been one of the bright spots to a disappointing season, I have no problem with the decision as there’s nothing to be gained by running him into the ground. If he’s as good as projected, he’ll be throwing 200-plus innings soon enough.
Matt Harvey takes the mound as the Mets try to make it four in a row and tie the Phillies for third place in the division.

Matt Harvey, without having his best stuff still had a quality start against the Phillies, thanks to some key offensive contributions from Lucas Duda
Matt Harvey came out of the gate throwing his fastball often, and about as hard as Mets fans have seen in during this 2012 season. Harvey hit 99 MPH at least 5 times, and utilize that fastball for two strikeouts looking. Harvey’s...
Who says the Mets had no talent at Triple-A Buffalo this year? Oh, right. This guy. He’s wrong.
A duel between two AAA All-Stars on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park turned on the bat of a man who recently returned from there. Lucas Duda mashed a two-run homer in the third inning — his first since returning from a stint at Buffalo – and Matt Harvey made it stand up, outdueling...
The Phillies dropped their second straight to the New York Mets, losing 3-2. Tyler Cloyd pitched well, but was out-dueled by fellow rookie Matt Harvey.

Hello everybody and welcome to another sunshine-filled day of Mets baseball. We hope our friends in New Orleans and the rest of the Gulf Coast are safe and sound as Hurricane Isaac continues to swarm. Meanwhile, the weather in the Northeast couldn’t be better as the Mets try to take another from the Phillies tonight.

Harvey (3-3) allowed two runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings to help the Mets to their fourth straight victory and fifth consecutive win at Citizens Bank...

While it was refreshing to see the Mets snag four games in a row, they couldn’t come through with a sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies, losing by a count of 3-2 this afternoon.
Nonetheless, the Mets stay out of the NL East dumpster and still can claim a series win against Philadelphia heading into a last place series against the Miami Marlins this weekend.
