Harvey Flirts With Perfection, Mets Edge White Sox
Matt Harvey pitched one-hit ball for nine innings in a nearly perfect performance and the New York Mets permitted just one baserunner all game in beating the Chicago White Sox 1-0 in the 10th Tuesday night.
Harvey allowed only an infield single by Alex Rios with two outs in the seventh -- he was safe, barely. The right-hander struck out a career-high 12 and was pulled when the game went to extra innings.
Pinch-hitter Mike Baxter lined an RBI single with one out in the 10th off Nate Jones (0-3).
Mets reliever Bobby Parnell (3-0) retired all three batters in the 10th.
