Last nite’s win felt like a peek into next season when we can lean on the next generation of Mets.
First Matt Harvey tossed another great game. Despite not having his best stuff he battled all the way to post a line of 2R, 6H, 2BB, 6K in 6.1 IP.
Never mind the Phillies crappy year it’s a notch on the youngster’s belt to beat Philly and to do it when he’s not on the top of his game is yet another valuable learning experience for the rookie.
Obtw Harvey continues to RAKE as he picked up another hit and RBI and his avg now sits at .462 which means he’s currently batting more than 3x higher than Jason Bay.
The Second Met of 2013 is longtime BMF favorite Lucas Duda who was 2-4 with his 1st HR since being recalled and he added a SB for good measure.
I don’t know how Duda got his confidence back but he looks great right now. He was sorta middling in the minors. Certainly didn’t find any hot streak or rediscover his stroke down there but he sure has hit the ground running looking like the dangerous Duda we all know and want to love.
As I said it’d be nice to finish in 3rd but so long as Lucas is back on track to become a big bopper next year BMF is happy.
