Mets 4 Braves 3
Finally, Matt Harvey wins his sixth.
Mets Game Notes
I didn’t see the game since I was busy working at my real job. However, my good buddy Dennis texted me in mid-afternoon to let me know something special was happening. Immediately, I plugged into one earphone, and within 30 seconds, Jason Heyward reached base with the first hit of the game. Jinx? Nah, I don’t believe in that stuff.
In any case, it sounded like Harvey pitched his best seven innings of the year, perhaps of his young MLB career. And it also sounded like the Braves were within a hair of stealing another win from him.
If you saw the game, please post your notes in the comments.
