The New York Mets were a no-hit by San Francisco Giants rookie Chris Hetson on Tuesday, despite him not throwing a pitch above 92 mph, and things didn’t improve last night. Giants tagged Mets ace Matt Harvey for seven runs in six innings on the way to an 8-5 win. The Giants top two hitters combined for Naori Aoki and Joe Panik combined to go 7 for 10 with a homer and four home runs.

Harvey has shown some inconsistencies this season since his return from Tommy John surgery which sidelined him all of the 2014 season. His ERA is well over a run than his 2013 mark which saw him named the National League’s All-Star game starter.

The Giants on the other hand continue to look better and better as the season goes on. After a slow April, they have the third best record in the National League and trail the Dodgers by a single game in the NL West.
