New York Mets
He didn't pitch very well again.
The Reds (71-47) were riding a five-game winning streak and looking to sweep the Mets (56-62), but New York and Matt Harvey (W 2-3, 3.00) had other ideas. Harvey struck out eight, while allowing just one earned run on four hits over 7.2 innings to lead the Metropolitans to an 8-4 victory. Homer Bailey (L 10-8, 4.16) once again struggled for the Reds, while the bats were kept mostly quiet all night by the Mets' pitching staff and a ninth inning rally fell short. You win five, you lose some I guess.
Here's the good, the bad, and the notables:
-Jay Bruce collected a seventh-inning RBI (74) to get the Reds on the scoreboard, then doubled and scored a run in the ninth.
-Brandon Phillips recorded a double and a run scored.
-Ryan Ludwick hit his 22nd home run of the year in the ninth.
-Alfredo Simon delivered 1.1 scoreless innings of relief, while Logan Ondrusek added one of his own.
-Miguel Cairo and Zack Cozart tried to ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Matt Harvey was in top form against one of the NL’s best tonight. The rookie righthander did it all in leading the Mets to an 8-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds. The win helps the Mets avoid a three-game sweep, a bit of a ritual these days.
This is the fourth series in a row the Mets have salvaged in the final game. Kind of a twisted way of looking at success, but you work with what...
For New York Mets fans, the 2012 season has become near unwatchable. The offense is anemic. The bullpen is abysmal. And your daily Twitter conversations have become 140 character rants voicing our displeasure. While us fans do not have much to be excited about, the clubs seventh overall pick in the first-round of the 2010 Draft, Matt Harvey, has been the exception. During the...

From Elias: Matt Harvey struck out eight batters against the Reds on Thursday, bringing his total to 34 in his five major-league games. The only pitchers who debuted in the major leagues with the Mets and had that many strikeouts in their first five starts are Nolan Ryan (39) and Dwight Gooden (36).
Harvey was also the first player in the modern era to collect two hits while totaling...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Rookie Matt Harvey drove in one more run than he allowed in the longest outing of his short major league career, and the New York Mets snapped the Cincinnati Reds' five-game winning streak with an 8-4 victory on Thursday night.
Harvey (2-3), who had lost three straight starts after winning in his major league debut, allowed one run and four hits in 7 2-3 innings...
Hey, guys! We're only 17 games out in the division now! At this point in the season, I wouldn't normally watch the remainder of the games, but with my new love for blogging, I watch each game with a critical eye to provide the best analysis of each game.Tonight, I am glad that I watched the game. The Mets defeated the Cincinnati Reds by a score of 8-4 to avoid being swept...
The Reds dropped an ugly game to the Mets last night to end the latest winning streak. Homer Bailey did not have a good outing, just as he hasn’t over his last four outings. If the pitcher introduced in the double-header tomorrow makes a good start, maybe Bailey will be getting a little more rest. It’s hard to imagine how he’d contribute to a postseason team in this...

There’s almost no part of the game last night that doesn’t qualify as an all-out stinker as the Reds broke their 5-game win streak in the final game of the series against the Mets.
Homer Bailey’s performance certainly qualifies. In just 5.2 innings, he allowed 6 runs (4 earned) on 8 hits and 3 walks. I was on the road last night so I didn’t see the game on t.v., but I did...
Every year, some guys come out of nowhere in the second half of the fantasy baseball season and this year that has been Kris Medlen. The former top pitching prospect for Atlanta who has battled injuries in recent years tossed a five-hit shutout with six strikeouts. He showed he is fully healthy with 104 pitches and he should remain in the rotation with the Braves temporarily moving...
It has been a streaky season for Ike Davis here in 2012. The Mets hope that his 2-for-4 performance Thursday night which featured a double and a homer is an indication that Davis is about to go on another tear. On a team struggling to find power, the Mets need Davis to be a threat in the middle of the order if their offense is going to be productive.
After bottoming out on June 5th...
