NEW YORK (AP) --- Matt Harvey finished one out shy of a complete game, earning
his first win against the team he rooted for growing up and leading the New
York Mets to an 8-2 victory Saturday over the crosstown rival Yankees.
Kevin Plawecki hit his first major league home run and drove in three runs, and
Lucas Duda and Eric Campbell also connected off an ineffective CC Sabathia
(0-4) at Yankee Stadium.
The Mets rebounded from having their 11-game winning streak snapped in the
Subway Series opener and kept pace with the 1986 team for best start in
franchise history at 14-4.
Jaun Lagares went 4 for 4 with an RBI triple for the Mets, who got six of their
seven RBIs from the Nos. 6-9 batters.
Harvey (4-0) went 8 2/3 innings and was pulled after giving up just his fifth
hit and second walk.
