For a franchise that is desperate to for good news, its hard to find more of that good news than the Mets did on Tuesday in Atlanta. In the first game of a doubleheader, Matt Harvey took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and racked up 13 strikeouts. The bullpen was able to hold the lead and Harvey earned the win. If that was not enough to make Mets fans smile, Zack Wheeler followed up Harvey's performance by striking out seven through six scoreless innings in his major league debut as the Mets won again. Wheeler hit 97 on the radar gun most of the night, but it looks even faster to hitters because he hides the ball and it jumps on them. Wheeler is going to need to be more efficient with his pitches moving forward, but there is no doubt that he has the stuff be in the majors right now.
