The Mets will resume their suspended game against the Atlanta Braves at 6:10 p.m, followed by their regularly scheduled game at 7:15 p.m.
“If not for the minor setback with the shoulder, he might already be here,” a team official told the New York Post. “We are at the point where you can say it’s probably two or three more starts (for Las Vegas).”
The Mets rebounded from an 0-3 start to their road trip by taking three of their last four, including a series win in Chicago, their first series victory since taking two of three from Washington at Citi Field a month ago.
Matt Harvey won his fifth straight decision, allowing five hits in 7 1/3 innings and singling in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning to lead the New York Mets over the Chicago Cubs, 3-2, on Friday.
Word of baseball writer Bill Chuck’s campaign to start Mariano Rivera in this year’s All-Star Game has traveled all the way to the Bronx. In fact, the Yankees closer knows all about it. And he says thanks, but no thanks.
Matt Harvey is really, really good. We’re talking cover-of-Sports-Illustrated good.
“The Mets, when (starting pitcher Matt Harvey) doesn’t pitch now, are so bad that it is embarrassing,” Francesa said. “They are so listless. They are so unwatchable. This is as bad as I have ever seen it. This is Craig Swan bad for these Mets.”
For a split second, Lucas Duda’s sharp grounder looked as if it was going to lift the Mets out of their doldrums. An unfortunate bounce later, New York was headed toward another loss in a season in which they are rapidly mounting.
Pittsburgh Pirates got a most fortunate bounce in beating the New York Mets 3-2 Sunday for a series win.
Just when will Mets fans get a glimpse at stud prospect Zack Wheeler?
Except for the games Matt Harvey pitches, the Mets have fallen out of relevance. There’s only one solution. It’s Wheeler time.
“Harvey was as advertised tonight,” Ventura said after the game. “He was as dominant as anyone they’ve seen. He’s (Justin) Verlander-like — he has velocity, movement and his presence is as good as advertised.”
Matt Harvey was so dominant, it seemed certain the Chicago White Sox would never score. Instead, each pitch raised more tantalizing questions: Would they ever get a hit, or even a runner?
Rain has forced the Braves to postpone their game Saturday against the Mets. A makeup date has yet to be determined.
“We just can’t drive in any runs,” manager Terry Collins said. “We played all the percentages we could play all game long, and nothing worked.”
