Morning Briefing: And Then There Were Two

Tonight, the Mets will take on the Philadelphia Phillies in game two of their three game set. Seth Lugo will have the start against Henderson Alvarez at 7:05 p.m.

Last night, Matt Harvey struggled once again, lasting just four innings. After a decent first, the Phillies homered off Harvey while he also committed a balk. Dominic Smith homered for the Mets, his ninth of the campaign. Harvey has the highest single season ERA among any Mets pitcher with 15 starts in a season. Comparatively, his 2013 ERA was the eighth lowest ERA in a Mets single season.
