The Mets were shutout today by the score of 3-0 as the Marlins took the final two games of the series to gain a split of the four game series.

Matt Harvey started and was cruising along through five dominant innings, but ran into a buzz saw in in the sixth inning when the Marlins scored all three of their runs and knocked him out of the game. Overall he allowed five hits, walked none and struck out eight batters. It was the third time this season that Harvey has failed to complete six innings and all three of those starts have come against the Marlins. Harvey is now winless in four starts against the Marlins this season.

Offensively, the Mets mustered only six hits in the game, two each by Justin Turner and Juan Lagares. They were 0-for-7 with RISP and stranded 11 baserunners including five by Ike Davis alone. What is it about Matt Harvey that causes the Mets bats to go silent? It was just another awful effort by the offense on a day that Harvey could have used the support.

The Mets will host the red-hot Kansas City Royals this weekend with Dillon Gee (7-8, 4.13 ERA) opposing righthander Wade Davis (5-9, 5.50) in Friday’s opener at 7:10 PM.
