• Harvey beats Cubs with his arm and his bat

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated May 17, 2013
    Having already impressed with his arm, Matt Harvey got to show off his bat. It was the first inning that gave Harvey trouble. He doesn't just have a great arm. Manager Terry Collins made a decision he might have handled differently even a month ago, allowing Harvey to hit for himself in the seventh inning with the score tied at Wrigley Field. Harvey returned for the bottom of the seventh and retired Chicago's six-, seven- and eight-hitters in order. He ended his outing two earned runs on five hits, zero walks and six strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings by retiring 21 of the final 23 batters he faced after some first-inning hiccups. Daniel Murphy and David Wright homered for the Mets, and reserve right fielder Marlon Byrd preserved the lead by throwing out a runner at the plate in the eighth inning.
