The Mets swept the Yankees for the first time that the sixteen year-series has been played, and it was only the fourth time they won the season series. Contained within those four games was the first blown save in 2013 for the great Mariano Rivera (the first time he failed to record an out in his storied career), a 9-4 blowout much needed by a struggling offense, and four starters who pitched into the sixth inning or deeper.

PIcked 7th overall in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, Matt Harvey had already arrived in the Major League Clubhouse for Mets Spring Training. The UNC alum is in position to speed through the minor leagues after spending time with the Mets Advanced A and AA squads last year.

Before his re-assignment to minor league camp, Harvey spent his time picking the brain of all the pitchers with MLB experience, especially Miguel Batista. Harvey warmed up with Batista every day and learned how to 'finish' on his pitches from him.
