The Dark Knight will be facing Arizona for the second time this season. On June 4th, he hurled seven innings of two run ball, striking out nine in the Mets’ 6-2 victory. Like all New York starters, Harvey has been given poor run support. He is 7-6 with a 3.11 ERA, amazing when you also consider that he had Tommy John surgery in 2013. He is such a dynamic and exciting pitcher, that you will see the #HappyHarveyDay trend on Twitter all day Saturday. It will be almost three years to the day (7/26/12) that Harvey made his Major League debut against the D’backs at Chase Field.
