Despite fanning 11 and only surrendering one run and three hits over seven innings, Mets flamethrower Matt Harvey received a no-decision in a 6-4 loss to the Washington Nationals on Friday night in New York City.
Yanked after 109 pitches with a 4-1 lead, even the 24-year-old Harvey (7-1, 2.05 ERA) couldn’t direct the hapless Mets to a victory.
With a 32-44 record and jockeying for last place in the National League East, “The Amazin’s” are again a hideous squad.
Fortunately for the Mets, Anne Vyalitsyna’s banging companion gives fans a reason to visit Flushing every fifth day.
Dubbed “The Dark Knight of Gotham,” the 6-foot-4, 210 pound Harvey consistently hits 96 mph on the radar and has now whiffed 132 batters in 117 frames.
Although far removed from even competing for their third World Series title, the Mets employ a legitimate superstar in Harvey.
To showcase their brilliant youngster, Matt Harvey is destined to start the All-Star Game on July 16 at CitiField in Queens.by
