Reds’ Matt Harvey Puts In Another Strong Performance

Published

Maybe a change of scenery was all the Matt Harvery needed to rediscover his form.

The former New York Mets phenom has hit his stride since coming over to the Cincinnati Reds and put in another strong start as the Reds topped the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.

Harvey pitched six-hit ball into the seventh inning, earning back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

“A start like today where you’re facing a good lineup, and you don’t have your best stuff, and you grind through it, it’s a step in the right direction,” Harvey said (h/t ESPN).

“I was cruising,” Harvey said.

Harvey (3-5) allowed one run in 6 2/3 innings in his longest start since he went 7 innings for the Mets against the Washington Nationals back on April 21st, 2017.

“The more he goes out there, the more comfortable I think he gets,” Reds’ Sccoter Gennett said. “He’s able to command his pitches better and better … you can see that confidence going up. I’m just really happy he’s got an opportunity over here to get back to his normal self and it looks like he’s doing that.”

Braves manager Brian Snitker said that “everything was crisp” with Harvey’s pitch selection throughout the game.

“His breaking ball was really good tonight,” Snitker said. “His fastball, his whole game, the whole thing was a lot better than the last time I saw him.”

Over 9 starts for Cincinnati, Harvey has gone 3-3 with a 4.31 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.

The Cincinnati Reds have placed Joey Votto on the 10-day disabled list due to a right knee contusion that he suffered last week when he was hit near the knee by Washington Nationals pitcher Ryan Madson in what has been viewed as intentional.

After the hit, Votto limped to first base as he barked at Madson, who appeared to be retaliating for the plunking of National players, such as Bryce Harper.

The trip to the disabled list will mark the first one for Votto since 2014, and he is posting a .284/.422/.419 batting line this season.
