The Mets lost to the Marlins on Wednesday afternoon in Jupiter, as a late lead turned into a deficit when Scott Rice allowed five runs in the seventh inning. Before that, however, Matt Harvey threw two-and-two-thirds innings, and while he wasn't quite as dazzling as he was in his first spring training outing, he still very much appeared to be Matt Harvey.
With the Marlins rolling out a lineup fit for a regular season game, Noah Syndergaard, who threw two-and-two-thirds innings of his own, was outstanding. He hit the upper-90s on the gun, and his offspeed stuff had major league hitters missing by a lot. He struck out five, walked none, and gave up just one hit.
