Final Score: Tigers 3, Mets 0 — Harvey non-dominant, but Mets bats non-existant

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Harvey gave up a couple runs in the second inning before settling in, but the small deficit was too much for the Mets to overcome.

The Mets lost to the Tigers at Citi Field this afternoon as Matt Harvey gave up a couple of runs in the second inning and the team’s bats couldn’t produce any.

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.
