PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) -- Matt Harvey was nearly perfect for 4 1-3 shutout innings, pitching the New York Mets past the Miami Marlins 4-1 Thursday.
Harvey didn't give up a hit or walk, and struck out five. The only baserunner against him reached on an error. The Mets right-hander is set to begin his first full season in the majors.
Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco was almost as impressive, giving up an unearned run and three hits in 3 2-3 innings. He struck out six.
Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano, wearing a heart monitor, retired the two lefty batters he faced in the fifth inning.
Matt den Dekker homered in the fifth for the Mets.

He smacks the leather of the second baseman's mitt. He also has gloves to play third base, shortstop and the outfield. He says his favorite position is "on the field."

There’s been a lot of talk this spring about turning points. How this season may become a watershed campaign, kind of like the Mets of the early 80′s when it became obvious the team was on the ups. Baseball itself is a game of turning points. Who knows, the season may feature it’s own change in fortune if things break right when d’Arnaud and Wheeler get the call. It got me...

The Miami Marlins are so desperate to sell tickets to Opening Day that they are literally giving one away for free for every ticket bought.
Bill Madden of the Daily News had an interesting quote in his article today about the Yankees and their apparent need for more power in the lineup. What caught my attention was a quote from a Marlins’ operative about the future of 22-year old All Star Giancarlo Stanton.
