Mets, Harvey top Blue Jays again, 3-2
NEW YORK (AP) -- Matt Harvey returned to form with seven shutout innings and an RBI double, leading the New York Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
Bobby Parnell earned a five-out save in his third outing since Tommy John surgery, and the NL East leaders held on without their top late relievers thanks in part to a major baserunning blunder by the Blue Jays.
One night after ending Toronto's 11-game winning streak, the Mets won for the fifth time in six games and improved to 11-0 at home against the Blue Jays.
Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada each knocked in a run and scored another to help New York build a 3-0 cushion. Harvey (7-4), who was 1-3 with a 7.20 ERA in his previous four starts, allowed four hits against the best offense in baseball and gave a huge fist pump after working a perfect seventh.
