    New York Mets' Daniel Murphy returns to high-fives in the dugout after scoring on an single to center by Lucas Duda in the third inning.

    Matt Harvey threw seven impressive innings, John Buck hit a three-run homer and the New York Mets roughed up Roy Halladay in a 7-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night.

    Harvey (2-0) followed up a dominant first start with another sharp outing. He gave up one run, three hits and struck out nine. The 24-year-old righty allowed one hit and fanned 10 in seven scoreless innings against San Diego last Wednesday.

    Meanwhile, Halladay (0-2) barely resembles the two-time Cy Young Award winner who had 40 wins and tossed a perfect game and postseason no-hitter in his first two years with the Phillies in 2010-11.

    Halladay allowed seven runs and six hits in four-plus innings. He's given up 12 runs in 7 1-3 innings in two starts after a tough spring.
