Fast Reaction: Mets 4, Twins 2

New, 3 comments

The phenom lived up to his title, nearly no-hitting the Twins in the process.

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

In the preview for today's game, I compared Matt Harvey to Stephen Strasburg. He did little to dispel that claim, holding the Twins to 1 run and 2 hits over 8 innings. As for Scott Diamond, he looked pretty good at first, but kind of blew up in the 5th inning as he neared his 80 pitch limit.

Roll Call:

For some odd reason, there's a ton of blank space that follows before you see the table. I don't know why that's happening. Sorry folks for making you scroll down for an extra 1 1/2 seconds.

Kudos to kenzertz for being today's Chatty Cathy.

Highlights:

  • Matt Harvey flirted with a no-hitter for 6 2/3 innings, until....
  • Justin Morneau broke it up with a solo homer off the right field foul pole.
  • Scott Diamond held the Mets scoreless until the 5th inning, first allowing a solo homer to Marlon Byrd and then just falling apart from there.

Win Expectancy:
