Matt Harvey allowed a single run but that was all the Nationals needed as the Mets came up empty at the plate, falling in a sweep 2-0.
The Bad Stuff:
- Try 13 straight homegames with 3 or less runs and an 0-6 homestand against hated division rivals. Just another week at Citi Field.
- Matt Harvey's lone crime, the one thing he did to merit the L on the night, was allowing a solo home run to Ryan Zimmerman in the 4th inning. Nowadays, that "1" on the scoreboard might as well become a "10." Other than that one bad pitch, Harvey was great in his106 pitches over 5 innings, giving up 4 additional hits and 3 walks while striking out 10 for the second time this season. While his record says 3-5, his 2.92 ERA and 63 Ks over 9 starts (52.1 innings) make him one of the few bright spots in this season of discontent.
- David Wright did his best to break the ice, going 2-4 and stealing 2 bases.
Well, they're certainly making my job easier. That's not a good thing.
