Matt Harvey Continues to Make History


Matt Harvey allowed one run, earned, in 6.0 innings of work on Saturday.

He has a 0.92 ERA (two earned runs/19.2 innings) over his last three starts dating to June 16. He is the first Met with three straight outings of at least 6.0 innings and one or fewer runs allowed since Jacob deGrom had three straight such starts from August 29-September 9, 2014.

Harvey is one of only two starters in the last 100 years to allow one run or fewer in 26 of his first career 51 games. The other is Dwight Gooden.

Harvey has failed to win 14 career starts in which he has allowed one run or no runs, the most such outings for a pitcher in his first 51 career games in the last century.
