Cancel the no-hitter alert: Matt Harvey gives up an infield single to Jason Heyward

15 Comments

UPDATE: Forget it. Jason Heyward just reached on an infield single. A weird looking one as Harvey fielded the ball between the mound and first and then flipped it to … no one. Scored an infield hit, which makes sense considering that errors are rarely called on bad decisions by fielders — in this case on Lucas Duda not covering first — as much as they are by bad execution.

3:10 PM: Matt Harvey is absolutely dominating the Braves through the first six innings of today’s game.

Harvey has allowed no hits while walking two and striking out 12. His fastball has hit 100 miles per hour at times today. The Braves lineup is Upton-free and is also missing Evan Gattis and Brian McCann, but the way Harvey is throwing it doesn’t seem like anyone could hit him.

Unless they can’t. We’ll keep you posted as the next three innings progress.
