In total, Harvey went six-and-two-thirds innings, struck out four, walked none, and gave up a career-high thirteen hits. It was another non-dominant start for harvey, but subpar by Harvey’s standards still isn’t too bad.
The only Mets hitter who had a good day at the plate as Ike Davis, who went 2-for-3 with a single, a double, and a walk. The Mets hardly got anyone on base through the first four innings of the game, but they squandered a big opportunity after loading the bases with just one out and Max Scherzer clearly tiring in the sixth. The Juan Lagares strikeout and following John Buck first-pitch pop fly wasted the team’s best chance to score.
The Tigers tacked on a run in the top of the ninth, but it didn’t much matter as the Mets were retired in order in each of the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings.
