Matt Harvey held the Cubs to two runs in 7.1 innings this afternoon and delivered the game-winning RBI single in a 3-2 Mets victory.
Harvey is now 5-0 with a 1.55 ERA in nine starts this season, posting an awesome 68/14 K/BB ratio in 64 innings. And he’s a career .243 hitter.
Harvey walked zero batters for the second time in three starts after walking at least one batter in each of his first 16 starts and averaging 3.4 walks per nine innings during that span. If his improved control is for real and Harvey has already figured out to harness his incredible raw stuff at age 24 … wow.
After 19 career starts he has a 2.12 ERA with 10.1 strikeouts per nine innings and a .175 opponents’ batting average.
