Mets News: Matt Harvey to get on mound next week, finally.....

Mets News:

Matt Harvey has the go-ahead to get on a mound next week for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery on Oct. 22, 2013.

Harvey had wanted to be on a mound in June, but did not have organization permission.

It's clear Harvey will not pitch in the majors this season. Still, it's possible Harvey will pitch briefly in the fall instructional league, which spans late September and early October in Florida.

Mets Minor League Roundup 7/30: Conforto tearing it up for Brooklyn

Mets Minor League Roundup 7/30:

Mets AAA - EL PASO 8, LAS VEGAS 5: Starter Logan Verrett surrendered four runs in six innings, including homers to Tyler Greene, Cody Decker and Taylor Lindsey. Trailing 7-1, the 51s posted a four-run eighth that included a three-run double by Allan Dykstra. Box

Mets AA - NEW HAMPSHIRE 7, BINGHAMTON 2: Starter Greg Peavey allowed four first-inning runs, including a two-run homer to Matt Newman, en route to his first Eastern League loss since April 14. Peavey (8-2) followed with five straight scoreless innings. The B-Mets clawed within 4-1 in the second against Casey Lawrence. T.J. Rivera doubled, moved to third on a groundout and scored on Jayce Boyd's sacrifice fly. In the sixth, Brian Burgamy walked and stole second base. After a pair of strikeouts, Darrell Ceciliani produced an RBI double as Binghamton moved within two runs. The Fisher Cats pulled away from there, though. Hansel Robles and Jack Leathersich combined to handle the final three innings. They surrendered a total of three runs -- all unearned -- on a four-error night for the B-Mets. Box

Mets High A - ST. LUCIE 4, DUNEDIN 3: Michael Fulmer tossed six scoreless innings and Eudy Pina went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs. Pina's two-run double in the sixth staked St. Lucie to a 4-0 lead. Dunedin pulled within a run with a three-run eighth against Beck Wheeler. T.J. Chism inherited the tying run on second base and, after issuing a walk, coaxed an inning-ending groundout. Chism then tossed a perfect ninth for his fourth save. The intended second game was canceled because rules prohibit three doubleheaders in a seven-day span. Box

Happy Recap: Game 108 - Phillies (2) at Mets (11) - Duda and Co. Do damage at Citi



New York

W: Z. Wheeler (6-8) L: K. Kendrick (5-11)
HR: PHI - J. Rollins (15)   NYM - D. Murphy (8),L. Duda (19)


Lucas Duda continued his recent tear and Zack Wheeler pitched into the seventh inning, as the New York Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 11-2, in the rubber match of a three-game set Wednesday afternoon at Citi Field.

Daniel Murphy added a three-run homer, finishing 3-for-5 with two runs scored, and Ruben Tejada and Juan Lagares had three hits apiece for the Mets, who have won six of nine.

Duda finished 2-for-5 with a homer, three RBIs and two runs scored for New York, which has won four straight home series. The first baseman, who was also robbed of a homer in this game, is riding a modest six-game hitting streak, belting four homers and driving in 10 runs over that span. Since the All-Star break, Duda is hitting .302 (13-for-43) with five homers, 11 RBIs and 11 runs scored.

Wheeler (6-8) allowed two runs on seven hits, striking out four and walking two to win his third straight decision. The right-hander has tossed at least six innings in his last six trips to the hill, allowing two runs or fewer each time.

Jimmy Rollins hit a pinch-hit home run and Ryan Howard drove in a run for the Phillies, who have lost eight of 12 to the Mets this season.

Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick (5-11) suffered the loss, allowing four runs on seven hits, striking out four and walking two over six frames. The right- hander has dropped three of his last four starts.

After Phils center fielder Ben Revere kept it a scoreless game in the fourth inning, making a leaping catch at the wall in right-center to rob Duda of a home run, he played a part in getting Philadelphia on the board in the fifth.

Revere led off the inning with a double, stole third with two outs and then scored when Howard ended a personal 0-for-12 slump with a double.

The Mets though, took the lead in the bottom of the inning. Lagares and Tejada began the inning with consecutive singles and then advanced 90 feet on Wheeler's sacrifice bunt. Curtis Granderson was then walked to load the bases for Murphy.

Kendrick uncorked a wild pitch on the first offering to Murphy to allow Lagares to score the game-tying run. Then, his 2-1 pitch to Murphy was deposited into the stands in left field for a 4-1 lead.

Rollins hit a pinch-hit homer to lead off the seventh to cut the visitors' deficit to 4-2, but the Mets put the game out of reach in the home half.

Duda, Travis d'Arnaud, Chris Young, Tejada and relief pitcher Jeurys Familia all came through with RBI singles in the frame to make it a 9-2 contest.

Duda rounded out the scoring with his two-run homer in the eighth, with Murphy aboard thanks to a single two batters prior.

Game Notes

Revere's stolen base was his 29th of the season ... Murphy hit his eighth HR of the season. He leads the NL with 130 hits ... Duda's HR was his 19th of the season ... Familia's RBI was the first of his career ... The Mets improved to 5-1-1 in their last seven series ... New York also upped its mark to 23-13 during day games this season ... Rollins has 15 HRs this season ... Granderson ended 1-for-4 with two runs scored for the Mets.
