Yesterday in San Diego Matt Harvey seemed to find himself getting back to winning ways with six innings of work, including 10 strike-outs and even a double.
The win combined with the Cubs sweep of the Nationals put the Mets in first place by a half-game.
Familia got the statistical save for his work in the ninth, but it was really Antonio Bastardo who saved the New York Mets. Coming into the game in the eighth with the bases loaded and no outs, Bastardo retired the three batters he faced.
A collective sigh of relief and on with the game.
