Matt Harvey (12-7, 2.80 ERA) will pitch for the Mets n Saturday against Cincinnati’s John Lamb (1-3, 4.60 ERA).
The Mets can also clinch the division if Phillies beat the Nationals, regardless of what the Mets do against the Reds.
In case you missed it Friday...
New York's Magic Number dropped to one after defeating the Reds, 12-5, on Friday at Great American Ballpark, during which Lucas Duda hit two three-run home runs and Noah Syndergaard pitched into the eighth inning.
Juan Uribe left Friday's game against the Reds mid at-bat after he aggravated a chest injury. X-rays after the game came back negative, but he will likely miss some time, Terry Collins said Friday.
Ruben Tejada will likely start at short this weekend after Collins said Friday that Wilmer Flores is "running out of gas". Flores has started five of the past 10 games, while Tejada has started the other five.
