New York Mets vs. Cincinnati Reds

The Cincinnati Reds have named Sal Romano as the game two starter versus the New York Mets on Friday night. Matt Harvey (l.) looked like he truly was making progress.

"The swings and misses will come, the velocity will come, but I wanted to get five innings", Harvey said.

Harvey labored through the first inning Thursday, needing 25 pitches to retire the Reds as they scored one run.

Batting fourth in New York's lineup, Nimmo ripped an opposite-field drive off reliever Tim Adleman in the fifth inning that touched just above the orange line on the left-field wall for a home run.

"Overall just starting to feel a little more comfortable out there with mechanics and attacking hitters", Harvey said. "I don't want to jump out there and immediately try and be what I know I'm capable of being eventually". "I guess I would never say never, but right now, no". He missed nearly three months this year with a right shoulder stress injury after undergoing season-ending surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome last year.

That hope for a strong finish began with a dud in his last outing against the Astros, but Harvey fared much better against the Reds.

Harvey's fastball again sat in the low 90s Thursday and topped at 94 miles per hour according to brooksbaseball.com, but he battled through this time.

NOTES: Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard (torn right lat) made his second rehab start, allowing three runs in two innings for Class A Brooklyn. The 22-year-old answered a four-walk performance on August 27 by scattered five hits over six scoreless frames in a no-decision versus Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Suzuki had his 26th pinch hit this season, two shy of the major league record of 28 set in 1995 by John Vander Wal when he played for the Colorado Rockies. He pointed to the fifth inning as his highlight of the night.

Nimmo started in the cleanup spot for the second time as a big leaguer despite entering the game with only one homer and five extra-base hits in 95 at-bats this season.

"I thought we put the ball in play hard a lot", Reds manager Bryan Price said. "He feel should be pretty good as far as coming off the last game where he's at right now", Collins said.

Brandon Nimmo and Juan Lagares' back-to-back solo home runs in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Shelved for nearly three months with an injury to the scapula in his right shoulder, the Mets' one-time ace was rocked for seven runs over two innings in Houston his last time out. Nimmo finished 3-for-4.

Nimmo led off the second inning with a double that careened off Scott Schebler's glove in the right-field corner, advancing to third on a groundout and scoring on Dominic Smith's RBI single. "I'd have to go back and look at the video to see exactly where the locations were, but I probably give him more credit than point a finger at a mistake by our pitchers". It's been a rough two years, especially with the injuries and really trying to fight back constantly with that.
