It was absolute excellence.
Matt Harvey pitched a near masterpiece last night at Great American Ball Park, firing a gem in the Mets' 8-4 win over the Reds. The Mets' prized rookie was perfect through four innings and logged a career-high (so far) 7 2/3 innings.
He probably could have gone the distance, and may have been wishing he had considering closer Frank Francisco allowed three runs in the ninth, before being bailed out by Jon Rauch, turning a laugher into a bit of a nail-biter.
In his fifth major league start, Harvey allowed just one run on four hits and a walk, striking out eight in an 89-pitch outing. He was efficient, throwing just 26 balls all night — an average of about three per inning.
