Matt Harvey Tagged For Five Runs In One Innning

An article by posted on March 25, 2012

In what can only be described as a disastrous first inning against the Washington Nationals this afternoon, Mets starter Matt Harvey allowed five earned runs including home runs to Jayson Werth, Ian Desmond and Roger Bernadina.

Even opposing pitcher Stephen Strasburg hit Harvey up for a single, as the Nationals batted around in the first inning in a 7-hit barrage.

Harvey threw a total of 46 pitches in that inning, and was replaced by Justin Hampson who took over in the second inning.

Just a blip on the radar for the Mets prospect and it happens to the best of them…

Shake it off, Matt.

At last check, Mets down 8-0 going into the third. Yikes.
