What can I say about Matt Harvey's performance last night that hasn't already been said? In the Mets' 1-0, ten inning win over the White Sox, Harvey allowed one hit over nine shutout innings, striking out 12 without a walk. Say what you want to say about the White Sox offense, but Harvey's performance was one for the ages.

Game of the Night: Reds 5, Braves 4. Atlanta jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning in this one, and led 4-2 going into the eighth. Brandon Phillips hit a sac fly against Eric O'Flaherty to cut the lead to one, but with Craig Kimbrel facing the bottom of the Reds lineup in the ninth, things looked bleak for Cincinnati. After retiring the first two hitters in short order in typical Kimbrel fashion, pinch hitter Devin Mesoraco hit a solo homer to right center to tie the game and hand Kimbrel his second blown save of the week. Four pitches later, Shin-Soo Choo homered of his own to left center, giving the Reds a walkoff win and handing the Braves a very tough loss.no comments
