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.
CLOYD IMPRESSIVE DURING DEBUT

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.
Last night New York came from behind not once, but twice in...
NEW YORK -- Most Major League general managers operate under the belief that a team can never have too much pitching. Which is good news for the Mets, who are stockpiling enough young pitchers to carry them for years to come. With more than a month to go in the 2012 season, the Mets' 2013 rotation already seems set. R.A. Dickey should anchor the staff, with Jon Niese, Matt...
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...
PHILADELPHIA -- Lucas Duda hit a go-ahead two-run homer and then preserved the lead with an excellent defensive play to back Matt Harvey and lift the New York Mets to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. 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...
