Found August 08, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Matt Harvey has had better stuff and better velocity but he’d never had a complete game or a shutout. That is until last night when the Mets’ All-Star ace got both in a 5-0 domination of Colorado taking yet another step forward in what already is becoming a historic career. In a nine-inning performance that was ruthlessly efficient befitting Shark Week Harvey (9-3) was machine-like in his precision. He faced just three batters over the minimum allowed no walks and just four harmless singles and even overcame a line drive off the kneecap to blank the Rockies. “It’s awesome. As a starter pitcher it’s what you shoot for every time. To do it here do it at home [was fun]’’ Harvey said. “That’s something I’ve been trying to do all year go out there and eat up innings. … It’s fun to throw strikes and watch the defense work. “Nine innings that’s where you want to go as a starter whether I struck out 10 or zero or one. Nine innings with a bunch of zeroes that’s all that matters.’’
