Meet the Mets
The Mets were looking for a sweep of the Marlins on Sunday, but unfortunately they ran into Jose Fernandez. Fernandez was at the top of his game and faced little resistance from a struggling Mets offense. He pitched seven shutout innings and struck out fourteen. Matt Harvey, for his part, pitched well enough to win on any other day, as he went seven strong innings and gave up just the one run.
It will be a homecoming for Neil Walker as the Mets head to Pittsburgh tonight to face old friend Jonathon Niese and the Pirates.
Even though he was the losing pitcher, Matt Harvey took away some positives in his outing.
The offense has struggled in general and not just against Jose Fernandez recently. They need to fix themselves and not rely on outside help.
Some offensive help might come in the form of Travis d'Arnaud who began his rehab assignment Sunday.
