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.
Max Scherzer improved to 10-0 and struck out 10 Orioles on Monday night as the Tigers defeated the Orioles 5-1. Scherzer allowed one run and seven hits in six innings. His only mistake was the pitch Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 24th homer in the second, but Scherzer struck out Davis with the bases loaded in the fifth and the Orioles down by two runs. Scherzer lowered his ERA to 3.08 this season for the AL Central leaders. Scherzer is having a great season as he also has a 3.08 ERA and 116 strikeouts to go along with his perfect record. He is putting together an elite fantasy campaign.
