Harvey Homers in 4-2 Win over D'Backs



    Harvey Homers in 4-2 Win over D'Backs
    Mets starter Matt Harvey, right, celebrates his first career home run.

    Matt Harvey pitching seven strong innings and hit his first career home run to lead the New York Mets to a 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Lucas Duda homered for the second consecutive game and Ruben Tejada also went deep for the Mets.

    After giving up a two-run homer to David Peralta in the first inning, Harvey (8-6) settled into a groove and scattered just four singles over his last six innings. He walked four and struck out nine while throwing 109 pitches.

    Jeurys Familia got the last three outs for his 26th save in 28 chances.

    It was another solid pitching performance for the Mets, who have allowed just 23 earned runs over their last 142 innings.
