Overshadowed by Matt Harvey's?performance last night was Kevin Plawecki. The rookie catcher went 2-4 with three RBI in the Mets 8-2 win over the Yankees. Two of those three runs driven in came from his first career home run in the fourth inning off of CC Sabathia.

?It?s special, definitely,? Plawecki?said. ?Getting your first major league home run, it?s a big deal.?

Jacob deGrom was knocked around last night in the Bronx for six runs in only five innings of work.?DeGroms' 18 1/3 scoreless-innings streak, and more importantly the teams 11-game winning streak, came to an end last night.

"It's disappointing, because we were on a nice roll," Terry Collins said after the game. "I know the Yankees have been playing very well, but we're surprised when Jake doesn't have his good stuff and tonight he didn't have it."

Jon Niese was ejected during the top of the fifth inning of last nights game for arguing balls and strikes from the dugout during Juan Lagares' at-bat. There was initial confusion as to who was ejected when home plate umpire Doug Eddings signaled towards the Mets bench until Niese could be seen heading back to the locker room.

"I thought that it was a ball, he called it a strike, and I told him, 'Make an adjustment,'" Niese said after the loss to the Yankees. "He said he didn't want to hear another word, and I said, 'Well, then make an adjustment.' And he tossed me."
