Day 2 of our new feature as we follow the most influential contributors of the season:
Pitcher of the Game: Matt Harvey
If you’re not excited by what you’ve seen from Harvey, you should consider watching another sport. Third pitcher in Mets history to start career with 10Ks in first 11 starts. Other 2? Doc & Ryan. When you accomplish something that is shared by people who are recognized by 1 name, you’re doing good. That and when David Price tweets that you’re his new favorite non-Rays pitcher.
Position Player of the Game: Lucas Duda
I could have given this to Buck (HR, 3 RBIS) or Ike (2 run home run that almost hit the Shea Bridge) but Duda’s upper decker shot set the tone early, and he had an additional run, hit and walk in the game. All of his at bats made the Padres pitcher work. Plus, I really wanted to use that photo.
