Amazing what a little fastball command can do. Matt Harvey delivered his best AAA start and his first six inning performance in four tries: 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 eR, 3 BB, 10 K.
Harvey told MiLB.com:
I was really keeping the fastball down, moving it well inside and outside," Harvey said. "I was able to throw the curve for strikes, which always helps. The biggest thing, I'd say, was getting ahead. Whether it was fastball or curveball, I was able to execute pretty well and I was able to expand as the at-bat went on."AA: @ Binghamton Mets 7, Portland Sea Dogs (BOS) 5
After going 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a walk, Jefry Marte finished his first 10 games in AA hitting .394/.459/.576 with four doubles, a triple four walks and four strikeouts. Raise your hand if you were expecting him to do that in the first two weeks of 2012 as a 20-year old.
The Dogs hit Greg Peavey pretty hard: 3.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
