Mets RHP Matt Harvey opted not to speak to reporters following his relief debut in the Mets' 6-5 win over the Cardinals in extra innings on Wednesday night.
Harvey pitched the fifth and sixth innings and allowed one run in two innings of work.
Harvey retired the first two batters he faced in the fifth before Dexter Fowler laced a double to right field and Paul DeJong drove him in with a double to center field.
Then, with a runner in scoring position, Harvey struck out Koten Wong to escape the fifth inning without allowing further damage. In the sixth, he walked a batter but allowed no hits and no runs.
Harvey reached 94.7 miles per hour with his fastball and threw 35 pitches while striking out two batters.
"He's manned up and he's gonna go do the job," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said of Harvey after the game.
Tuesday's relief outing was came five days after Harvey gave up six runs on eight hits against the Braves. He had allowed at least four runs in three consecutive outings prior to Tuesday night.
Harvey made one relief appearance in September of 2017 when Noah Syndergaard, who was working his way back from injury, started and pitched just one inning before Harvey came out of the bullpen and allowed three earned runs in four innings.
