Matt Harvey Fans Nine In Another Gem
After getting off to a blistering hot start to his professional career and not allowing an earned run in his first 22 innings pitched, Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey hit a bump on the road last week and was charged with six runs (four earned) on nine hits and a walk while striking out three in 4 1/3 innings.
On Wednesday night, Harvey took the mound again and delivered a spectacular effort tossing 6 1/3 scoreless innings and lowering his ERA to 1.10. The seventh overall pick in last year’s Draft took a perfect game into the fifth but surrendered a one-out single to Calvin Anderson. That would be ther only hit he let up and he struck out nine batters in the game, giving him 39 K’s in 39 IP on the season.
Harvey got a no decision as St. Lucie lost 2-1, so his record remains 4-1, but opposing hitters are now batting just .207 off of him. If he continues to dominate like this, he may find him self pitching in Double-A Binghamton by the All Star break.
